"When Representative Luis Gutierrez, a liberal member of the House Financial Services Committee, heard over the weekend that President Obama had nominated Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, he wasn’t sure what to think. Not because he was unsure about Cordray’s record; Gutierrez just didn’t know who he was. ... Cordray may have a very low national profile, but in Ohio -- where he’s been active in Democratic politics since the early ’90s, and served as state attorney general for two years beginning in 2009 -- he’s much more of a known commodity."
