TPM has this little gem:
Clinton: Even Killing Goldman Sachs CEO Wouldn't Satisfy 'Blood Lust'
Sahil Kapur – May 8, 2014, 2:05 PM EDT
Here's the relevant excerpt about the former president from Sorkin's piece:
[Geithner] cheerfully relayed a story that also appears in his book about the time he sought advice from Bill Clinton on how to pursue a more populist strategy: “You could take Lloyd Blankfein into a dark alley,” Clinton said, “and slit his throat, and it would satisfy them for about two days. Then the blood lust would rise again.”
I agree that killing one bankster wouldn't do much to change the amorality of the whole crew but 30-40 just might work.
