Geithner says second term unlikely

“He’s not going to ask me to stay on, I’m pretty confident,” Geithner told Bloomberg Television on Wednesday. “I’m confident he’ll be president. But I’m also confident he’s going to have the privilege of having another secretary of the Treasury.”

Cabinet secretaries are rarely expected to serve a second term, and Geithner is no exception. As the last remaining member of Obama’s original economic team, Geithner has fought back rumors of his departure before.
