Thank you, Senator Cantwell…

…for taking a principled stand to make the financial reg bill better, and for recognizing the time to do what can be done.
WASHINGTON—Sen. Maria Cantwell (D., Wash.) said in an interview Thursday she would vote for the financial-overhaul bill when lawmakers return from the July 4th recess, bringing the White House to the verge of the 60 Senate votes it needs to ensure passage.

It's not often enough that a Senatorial quotation actually sounds like a grown-up talking...
"While we can't do everything, what we can do is make sure we have a law on the books to take the $600 trillion derivatives market and shine a very bright light on it."
So, thanks again, Maria, for your hard work, your wise vote and for, once again, making me proud of my representation in the other Washington.
