Lehman Brothers chief financial officer Erin Callan this morning faced what was perhaps the biggest challenge of her career: explaining Lehman's losses and need to raise capital to the markets. She began by lowering expectations--saying the Q&A on this morning's conference call would be limited because this was a preliminary announcement and more granular numbers were still being worked out--and wound up answering many questions in great details.
She's getting mixed reactions. Many are impressed by her confidence and competence with talking about Lehman's large asset sell-off and deleveraging. Others, however, aren't sure that Lehman really has a enough of a grip of the risks faced by its portfolio. So we decided to ask the experts, you.
After the jump, our poll on Callan's Monday morning performance.

If Joe Gregory's Lloyd Harbor manse isn't your style, or the $22 million asking price seems excessive for a place with only 8.5 baths, take a moment to consider the former Lehman Brothers CFO's East Hamptons pad. Callan is asking $3.95 million for the place, where she holed up following the financial crisis and where love blossomed with firefighter Anthony Montella, who she married last January. For you're money you'll get 7 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 5,000 square feet, 2 acres, a heated gunite pool, a barn, garden vineyards, "majestic trees," and a little piece of history.
