Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Agreed on Banks and receivership -  but Bernanke just got Time man of the year for averting a Great Depression - so perhaps definitions of free fall can vary.  

Would getting rid of the filibuster not require a 60 vote majority, and why would centrists give up their main source of leverage?

I think the main problem has been his treatment of Lieberman.  That meant all the centrists knew their was no price to be paid for disloyalty and following their own private interests.
