12. I like this idea.

Not exactly to make dreams come true, but any one of these would be awesome.

9. Let's have the guy who helped run the House Oversight Committee

On Financial Matters - Dennis Kucinich.

As far as I am concerned, the President still owes him for all the policy talking points he borrowed from Dennis back when he was campaigning in Wisconsin, Oct 2008

11. Great idea...bring back The Kooch!

Or...put some confirmation-bait figurehead in the Geithner's job, and bring Dennis in as "Economic Justice Czar"!

17. I am sorry folks ... it has to be another Banker.

Krugman is an economist and could possibly be the chair of the Federal Reserve ... but the treasury sec. has to be some one who know the nuts and bolts of the system.

Think of it this way - you need someone to maintain your car. The person you need is a mechanic - not an engineer who can design engines.

18. For your information, Geithner is NOT a Banker

Never was, probably never will be.

He is an economic hit man.

19. The head of the New York Federal Reserve qualifies as a banker.

And an economic hit man, of course.

21. Why would anyone want a banker in charge? Might as well go with a used car salesman.

I don't think bankers possess any knowledge or skills that your average economist wouldn't possess.

and a spine of steel. Gotta be Krugman.

Both should be part of a new economics team made up principally of reformers, not Wall Street establishmentarians.

He is one of the biggest advocates for free trade is he not?
