    Now consider why the Obama administration might not even initiate ANY prosecutions of of Wall Street lawbreaking at all, while they constantly railing against them?

    Could it be the obvious?
    'Look we talk bad, but we are your friends - but if you don't contribute to our campaign, or you do donate to our opponents campaign - then look out in my next term term. We will take revenge then.' (my paraphrase)

    This is Chicago politics at its best.
