Federal Reserve Chairwoman Nominee Janet Yellen
Sort of related to my post earlier but also just really exciting in itself, Janet Yellen was nominated by President Obama to be the next chair of the Federal Reserve! If appointed, she would be the first woman ever to hold the position as well as the first democrat since 1987.
(Sidenote: Larry Summers was also being considered but withdrew his name from consideration)
