Tim - time to go?

The inside chatter on the fate of Tim Geithner is starting to leak out as Henry Blodget suggests in an article today.

A friend reports chatter within the Obama administration that Tim Geithner was a bad choice for Treasury Secretary and that Quadrangle partner Steve Rattner (currently the car czar) was brought in partly to have a good relief pitcher on hand.

This doesn't surprise us: We think that, in this crisis, Tim Geithner is clearly the wrong man for the job. But this is also only unconfirmed chatter at this point.

Readers may recall that I have visited this area myself on a couple of occasions as far back as this post on February 10th.
