Geithner Considering Former Goldman Sachs Vice-Chair for Treasury Undersecretary

Imagine my surprise.

WSJ reports:

Among those said to be under consideration for the key position of Treasury Undersecretary is Suzanne Nora Johnson, a former vice chairman at Goldman Sachs Inc. But Ms. Johnson, who headed Goldman's global investment research division, may not have an easy time being confirmed. Between her ties to Goldman and the fact that she sat on the board of American International Group, Inc. — which was taken over by the government this fall — Ms. Johnson could face an icy reception in Congress.
For Undersecretary for International Affairs Geithner, according to WSJ, is considering Caroline Atkinson. Atkinson was an advisor to Treasury secretaries Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers, Rubin was, of course, also co-chairman of that Wall Street firm. Ah, let me see, what is its name? Oh yeah, Goldman Sachs.
