Pres. Obama is seeking more "tools" to keep the financial systems out of trouble.In the wake of the AIG bonus snafu, Obama says he envisions a body that plays a similar role to the way the FDIC protects creditors, depositors and consumers while also being more proactive in its dealings with troubled institutions, like AIG.
