Lloyd C. Blankfein nuzzled his beard against the cheeks of two ladies last night, Dina Powell, Goldman Sachs’s head of corporate engagement, and Liz Robbins, a Democratic lobbyist. “I was proving to women everywhere that it’s really soft, not coarse,” said Blankfein, 58, chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs, the fifth-biggest U.S. bank by assets. At the nightclub Hudson Terrace, Blankfein was attending the first big fundraiser for Team Rubicon, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit founded three years ago to deploy military veterans to respond to disasters.  [Bloomberg]
