As the Occupy Wall Street protests were beginning to take a sour turn in New York last night, Elliot Spitzer was discussing how the movement might force President Obama to change his posture on the financial industry:

This is organic, it is genuine, it is amassing more and more support by the day. It has touched a nerve, and I think this could really begin to say to the Obama administration, "Hey, you don't understand what we, the public, are saying to you." He has been so flat on this issue -- Wall Street and the economy -- maybe this will finally push the president to speak with a new, more aggressive, dynamic voice.
