Could Warren Buffett Successfully Run Bank of America?

Warren Buffett praised Bank of America (NYSE: BAC  ) in his recent edition of his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A  ) (NYSE: BRK-B  ) shareholders, but could the Oracle of Omaha run the bank more effectively than its current CEO Brian Moynihan? While Buffett isn't a "banker" by nature, he has been a deft capital allocator for decades at Berkshire. Meanwhile, Moynhan has spent years in the banking business -- running Bank of America's wealth management, investing banking, and consumer opertations before taking the helm as CEO.
