John Thain is a top-notch executive.  He did a great job modernizing the NYSE as Grasso's successor.  He's easily worth $10M/year, no matter what he does.  When he says he kept losses to a minimum, I absolutely believe that - unlike Fuld at Lehman Bros - he really did.

However, I do agree that his judgment is a little out there on this one.   He's worth $300M+, so it's not like he needs it.  And if he hangs on, he will get it  and then some eventually.  Asking for it just sounds foolish.

somehow...i dont feel ANY bonus should be asked for.  its a reward and should be gifted, not asked for.

It's often negotiated as part of a pay package, it's something that is eared as compensation for specific goals. It's more like a commission rather than a gift.

often, bonuses are a contractual obligation with no way out.
