The grassroots movement to install Jim Cramer as SEC chairman is growing.
As of 3 PM ET on Wednesday the Facebook group Jim Cramer for SEC Chairman had a single member. The last time I checked a few minutes ago it had 2,209 members. I suggest you join it yourself if you think Jim would make a great, "fox guarding the hen house" style SEC chair in the mold of Joe Kennedy.
Barack Obama, I hope your listening. Obama built his presidential campaign using the Web and ground-up grassroots movements. He should understand the power of Facebook and know that if someone other than Jim gets the job, there will be a lot of unhappy people.
Cliff Mason is the Senior Writer of CNBC's Mad Money w/Jim Cramer, and has been that program's primary writer, in cooperation with and under the supervision of Jim Cramer, since he began at CNBC as an intern during the summer of 2005. Mason was the author of a column at TheStreet.com during 2007, which he describes as "hilarious, if short-lived." He graduated from Harvard College in 2007. It was at Harvard that Mason learned to multi-task, mastering the art of seeming to pay attention to professors while writing scripts for Mad Money. Mason has co-written two books with Jim Cramer: Jim Cramer's Mad Money: Watch TV, Get Richand Stay Mad For Life: Get Rich, Stay Rich (Make Your Kids Even Richer). He is 100% responsible for any parts of either book that you did not like.
Mason has also had a fruitful relationship with Jim Cramer as his nephew for the last 23 years and will hopefully continue to hold that position for many more as long as he doesn't do anything to get himself kicked out of the family.
