Jack Bogle, the founder and longtime chairman of the Vanguard Group, the country's second-largest mutual fund company, has lauded New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer for his work in bringing order and justice to the American financial markets.

Bogle writes in a Time magazine profile of the 45-year-old attorney general entitled the "Top 100 Heroes & Icons," "whether or not you like Spitzer's crusading, he has taken on a series of battles against powerful interests, won landmark victories for consumers, and become a national icon along the way."
