What about Joe Stiglitz? This will be Obama's last term in office, so I say he should "go for broke" in economic reform, and Mr. Stiglitz will develop a remarkable redo.

It has been said that when Mr. Obama and Mr. Geithner's eyes first met, there was a "moment" between them that sealed the deal for Mr. Geithner. I am wondering if the same standard will be used when he is gone? Even Larry Summers, along with Christina Romer, wanted to use the banking situation to break up the too big to fail bunch, but Mr. Geithner intervened, and Mr. Obama agreed with him. And we are left hoping for change.

photeinos25: You have had almost four years to
recognize what Mr. Obama is and is not. However,
Mr. Romney is far worse. Go figure.

Gary Gensler? What are you smoking? That's all we need is another MF Global on HIS watch. Ben would be an excellent choice but we need him at the Fed and he can move over only at such time he is no longer there. It would be refreshing if they picked someone like Buffet but it's not going to happen

Laura Tyson is a big proponent of needlessly cutting Social Security. She rates 1 star at most.

I can't imagine anyone being worse than Geithner for Main St. By himself, one of the main reasons I am having a hard time voting for Obama this time around. If Obama wins, he needs to be held more accountable by progressives on this appointment and everything else.

How about Mr. Kuttner ! And not to mention NY Times' Paul Krugman ? ! or others that Paul Volker would most recommend !

Raskin, Stiglitz, or Born. Not in this universe, sadly.

You're silly! The only two equally excellent choices are Paul Krugman and Robert Reich. All of the choices you list above are mediocre to disastrous.

Obama doesn't have the guts and neither of them need Obama.

Mr. Geithner's 'Big Shoes' is perhaps a better description of his job. He is the Atlas of our financial world. He did not collapse under the weight and like his boss is not much appreciated by all involved including those 'self rewarding' wolves of Wall Street. Without them, much of what we are railing against may not be there. Who will be the next 'fool' fighting for Mr. Geithner's sox?

interesting defense of Geithner. I tend to agree. Sometimes those who ciriticize him , are intent or focused on what they WISHED should have happened like breaking up banks, and anything else makes them dissatisfied.
I tend to think we should NOT ROCK the boat of the Financials
However I am extremely angry and disappointed that WALL st has turned its back on OBAMA . Obviously they want Rmoney for the tax cuts and Estate tax etc and that is what makes me doubt the patriotism of that bunch.
