When you live in a small state like NH, it's a pleasant surprise when any of the locals gets a positive mention nationally. According to the Hartford Courant, John Sununu was one of the few voices pressing for reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - years ago. The others were Richard Shelby, Elizabeth Dole, and Chuck Hagel. Good on them, then. It may be because Sununu is one of the few Senators who can do basic arithmetic.
The major opponents of reform? Chris Dodd and Barney Frank.
