Chutzpah that Makes a Difference

It was somewhat comforting to read Jim Abrams' Associated Press report this morning about how all three recipients of last week's Chutzpah of the Week award were called to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, chaired by Henry Waxman. I am sure that Waxman appreciates all the denotations and connotations of "chutzpah" (and probably has to deal with all of them in the course of his work). However, I suspect that the Center for American Progress had more to do with bringing these guys (Angelo Mozilo of Countrywide Financial Corp., Stanley O'Neal, formerly of Merrill Lynch & Co., and Charles Prince, formerly of Citigroup Inc.) to his attention, as they had brought them to my own!
