      It’s rumored that Geithner has been trying to leave his post for some time. Bloomberg reported in June 2011 that he was looking to step down after the debt ceiling debate. Obama reportedly went to great lengths to convince Geithner -- who was a key negotiator in both the debt ceiling debate and the recent "fiscal cliff" talks -- to stay on for the rest of his first term.

        Geithner tried to resign once, and the President talked him into staying. They agreed at that time that he would stay through the first term. Geithner has talked about this in public. It has been expected that he will leave soon after the inauguration.
