Doubtful! Oh, but not so, says the the Post, claiming that not only does SK want the job, but that she "went public with her ambitions to run the bank" yesterday on CNBC. Those of you who saw the appearance live might be wondering when exactly Krawcheck revealed her plot to take over Bank of America. Were you in the bathroom at the time? Was the TV on mute? Were you momentarily distracted by Caruso and Cabrera? Apparently, according to the paper, it was when the Kraw made the statement that she's "very much focused" on what she's doing running BofA's wealth-management unit. If that doesn't say "Krawcheck for CEO 2010," the Post don't know what does. Confused? Let us assist you in following the giant leaps in logic.

Krawcheck was responding to Charlie "I'm workin' the phones here" Gasparino's demand that she tell him point blank whether or not she's after her boss's job. Although CG only gave SK two options ("Yes or no? Yes or no? Yes or no?"), she went with scenario C, which Gaspo seemed to interpret as an affirmative (you can tell by the "nailed it" look on his face at the end of the clip). The Post is sold, are we? Take a looksee at the damming evidence and let us know. (Krawcheck unveils her plan at 14:15.)
