Who would follow Geithner?

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - Timothy Geithner said Thursday that he plans to stay on as Treasury Secretary for the foreseeable future. But that hasn't stopped speculation about who might take his place later this year.

Sources told CNN and other news outlets Thursday that Geithner is considering leaving the Obama administration later this year, once negotiations on raising the government's debt ceiling and cutting the budget deficit are complete.

    Stop trying to influence the tenure of the Treasury Secretary. The President will let us know who will replace Geitner if & when it becomes necessary. I support the President and have no doubt he will continue to do a sterling job of personnel management.

    I assume when he does leave he can go back to his tax cheating ways. What do you say MSM, will you give him a break because he's liberal?
