Elizabeth Warren, chairwoman of the Congressional Oversight Panel and the lead candidate to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, met with White House officials Thursday.

Obama likely will risk upsetting liberal supporters if he doesn't choose Warren, but doing so might worsen relations with the financial community.
