Tim Geithner Out? — The New York Post takes a huge shot at him here. I still don’t see Geithner leaving, however, due to the lack of a credible replacement. Larry Summers could easily step in, but how is he ever going to get Senate confirmation? Same goes for every other viable private sector figure because they all come out of Wall Street or banking and, therefore, are politically if not ethically tainted. Paul Volcker is too old and everyone else I can think of is a Republican. So, like it or not, I think Obama is stuck with Geithner until we are well past the economic and financial crisis.
