Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has a new Republican who wants to run against her on the Republican ticket: former Bear Stearns exec David Malpass
. He was their chief economist from 2001 to 2008.
If history's any guide, like about 100 other guys so far
, he'll be bowing out of the race sometime soon.
More seriously, chief economist of Bear Stearns for the seven years before it collapsed? Really?
