I hope it is Tim Geithner instead of Larry Summers. Tim has a pretty good bio: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_F._Geithner Other candidates I would like (but have no chance) would be either Dick Kovacevich (Wells Fargo CEO), or Nouriel Roubini. Wells Fargo is the only bank in America rated AAA by S&P. Despite being headquartered in CA - the epicenter of subprime/liar loans, WFC always maintained the highest credit standards. Warren Buffet knows this, he loves this bank and has increased his holdings. WFC is the most solid large bank in America. So I like how Dick Kovacevich is probably the most responsible banker in the country. And I like how he humiliated Citigroup's taxpayer subsidized bailout of WB by offering his own private buyout. Nouriel Roubini has no shot at becoming Treasury Secretary but he is the only economist that saw this recession and financial meltdown coming. Roubini would be the modern day Paul Volcker type - he'd say fu*k you to Wall Street and allow many banks to fail. Larry Summers would be the worst choice. Unfortuanately he is at the top of Obama's list. Summers is a transaction tax advocate (which would put us all out of business). Summers also has a long history of making very controversial comments.
