“My survey of Wall Street executives [shows] Jack Lew in the running for this job...They think that he’s the most likely guy to be Treasury Secretary at least that’s according to the people I talked to: major Wall Street CEO’s and executive suite players that I deal with...The other guy that’s out there is Larry Fink CEO of BlackRock. I will say this, Larry Fink is a guy I know very well. I consider him a friend. The upside to Larry is clearly that there is no smarter guy on Wall Street that I know right now. He really understands the business...I think Larry wants the job. The negative is that he is really associated with the Wall Street crowd. That is something that I don’t think the Obama administration would go for.” --Charles Gasparino, close personal friend of Larry Fink [FBN]
