Embattled Citigroup CEO Vikram Pandit sent out a long, adorable memo to staff this morning about the big news. "I have received thousands of emails from you encouraging me to not give up hope and determination. I never have," he said. "And because of the dedication I've seen from all of you, I never will ... The last few months have been a difficult chapter in our very long history. It's time for us to put this period behind us and be proud to be Citi again. I am." We're not going to lie, we teared up a little. And those thousands of e-mails? Us. We can't help it. Something about this guy just makes us want to wrap him in a Slanket. [DealBreaker]
