How many Obama insiders will follow Orszag and Greg Craig to Wall Street

Obama budget chief Peter Orszag is now a VP at Citigroup, where his new bosses praise the “tremendous amount of knowledge as well as key private sector and government experience” he will bring, and the Financial Times hears he will be in a position “dealing with clients and top government officials.”

Greg Craig, Obama's former White House counsel is at Goldman Sachs.

So, which other Obama intimates will cash out while Obama is still in office. The Business Insider has a “Geithner to Goldman Clock” counting down to when he'll join Craig. If Rahm Emanuel loses the mayor race in Chicago, will he return to the financial sector where he made $16 million in two and a half years?

As these “public servants” cash out, we need to ask whom they were serving when in office, and we ought to re-examine whether Obama's “reforms” crafted by these aids really serve the public interest.
