Charlie Gasparino: Don’t Count Tim Geithner Out For Fed Chair

Tim Geithner basically spent the last four years trying and failing, numerous times, to leave Washington, i.e. his own personal torture chamber, but according to Chaz Gasparino, the former Treasury Secretary may allow himself to be pulled back in. Sayeth CG:

“This is from Wall Street executives at the CEO level, with, I would say ties to the White House. And here’s what they are saying – don’t discount Geithner as the next Fed Chairman to replace Ben Bernanke. As you know, Bernanke is likely to leave, and a lot of people speculate…that at the end of 2013 he might be out. Who’s going to replace him? We hear Janet Yellen name around a lot. But I could tell you I’m starting to hear this from Wall Street executives that are close to Geithner, close to the White House. They’re saying don’t discount him. Now we should point out that Geithner has told people he really doesn’t want the job. But I’m telling you, you’ve heard that in the past. I mean I remember Hank Paulson told President Bush about four times that he didn’t want the job as Treasury Secretary, back in 2006 and guess what – when the President tells you, please – It’s almost telling we need you – you take the job. And I’ll tell you that’s what a lot of people on Wall Street think is going to happen here.”
