Emmys 2012 Review: Jimmy Kimmel Scores

Filling Geithner's (Small) Shoes

Robert Kuttner | Posted September 24, 2012

Timothy Geithner has said that he'll step down as Treasury Secretary at the end of Obama's first term. Assuming that Mitt Romney keeps self-destructing and Obama wins a second term, who should succeed him? Just as Obama's choice in 2008 of an economic team led by Larry Summers and Tim Geithner told you a lot about what kind of president he'd be (and not be), Obama will signal a lot in his selection of Geithner's replacement. In an economic crisis, the treasury secretary (tied with the Fed chairman) becomes the most important domestic public official after the president.

London Fashion Week Online

Zoe Yates | Posted September 25, 2012

Usually this time of year I'm running around London Fashion Week rushing from show to show and no matter what shoes I wear I end up with my feet punishing me in some way.
