      but it would be a plum for a very senior Wall St exec to be Deputy Treasury Secretary.

    •  If it turns out to be Lew (0+ / 0-)

      will he have the contacts and clout on The Street, without a Street-wise deputy, to convince the self-proclaimed Masters of the Universe to support the president on much of anything besides raising the debt ceiling?  I'm assuming even Wall Street is smart enough to support raising the debt ceiling, since their livelihoods will depend on it.
