Financial regulatory agency posts are getting left behind

This final note on the way out today. A quick follow to the news yesterday that Sheila Bair’s going to leave her job running the FDIC this summer. Nothing untoward about that — her term’s expiring.

But it’s worth a mention that when she leaves, and as we’re trying to figure out exactly what the post-crisis rules and regulations for Wall Street ought to be, five of the key jobs running financial regulatory agencies will be empty.

Now, for extra credit, can you name ’em?
