Obama Facing Trouble from Hillary’s Herd?
This morning the Washington Post reported that the Hillary faction is organizing against the possibility of Larry Summers being named Treasury secretary. Not because they think he’s bad on economics or policy, but because feminists hate his open-mindedness. But now Fortune says he has the inside track:
Fortune believes that former Treasury Secretary Lawrence (Larry) Summers is in the lead to get the job. Summers, who served in the Clinton Administration, wouldn’t be a surprise pick. He along with other economic experts, ex-Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and former chairman of the Federal Reserve Paul Volcker, have advised Obama during the campaign, especially as the economic crisis unfolded. Volcker is said to be highly interested in the Treasury job, but Summers, with support from Rubin, has the inside track.
Maybe if Obama calls them “sweetie” more often the feminists won’t mind when he relegates their favorites to Health and Human Services.
