Adios, Vikram Pandit? Adieu, Ken Lewis?

From the Treasury-Fed guidance on the stress tests today:

Over the next 30 days, any BHC [bank holding company] needing to augment its capital buffer will develop a detailed capital plan to be approved by its primary supervisor, in consultation with the FDIC, and will have six months to implement that plan. ...

In addition, as part of the 30-day planning process, firms will need to review their existing management and Board in order to assure that the leadership of the firm has sufficient expertise and ability to manage the risks presented by the current economic environment and maintain balance sheet capacity sufficient to continue prudent lending to meet the credit needs of the economy.[E/A.]
