Page Six rumports (rumor-reports) today that White House officials are sounding out New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to succeed Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, assuming that Geithner, ah, steps down, or is ousted somehow after the projected Democratic midterm bloodbath.
A White House official flatly denies this is the case, and a Bloomberg spokesman said that "the President didn't float anything, and the Mayor hasn't had a boss in almost 30 years. He has zero interest in Treasury and is one of Geithner's biggest supporters."
What about the people of New York City?
(I kid... but ... do I?)
