"This Week with George Stephanopolous" today: "Yes, this idea of nationalizing banks is not comfortable, but I think we have gotten so many toxic assets spread throughout the banking and financial community throughout the world that we're going to have to do something that no one ever envisioned a year ago, no one likes, but, to me, banking and housing are the root cause of this problem. And I'm very much afraid that any program to salvage the bank is going to require the government. ..." Stephanopolous interrupted to ask what he would do now, and Graham replied: "I would not take off the idea of nationalizing the banks." Later Chuck Schumer, tacking to Graham's right, cautioned: "Let me just say this. George Bush, a very conservative president, had more government intervention in the financial system than any president in history. But I would not be for nationalizing. I think government's not good at making these decisions as to who gets loans and how this happens."
