CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Bob Rubin, the Treasury secretary during Bill Clinton's presidency, tumbled into a Ritz-Carlton hotel pool Wednesday around 8 p.m. The pool was next to a happy hour party that began 90 minutes earlier and was attended by top White House officials and Wall Street big-wigs.
Rubin, fished out by fellow guests, was said to be in good spirits by a person familiar with the tumble. The pool is on the 18th floor of the hotel.
President Barack Obama staffed his economic team with Rubin proteges. Rubin is a veteran of both Citigroup and Goldman Sachs.
The Ritz-Carlton party was hosted by Jane Hartley, Tony James, Orin Kramer, Reggie Love and Janet Cowell.
