Is most likely.
Gonna stay and then and then see how long does it say probably stays through the end of 2012 through the through the it until until the -- the if Obama wins the you know the next term might leave.
But for the foreseeable future securely and that no one will approve a replacement and -- -- -- Republican look at what's going on now with the debt ceiling.
Can you imagine what the confirmation battle be like already fighting the report that the reinstated for a number of Robert Miller of right they are right yeah that's what I mean that's been a place for a long time I mean we're getting in the way you know big they have their reasons I'm not I'm not close enough to that to know DD DD sort of inside details here how our politics I do know -- Well some of might be and so might be they don't like his policies but I mean the other parties this I know about Tim Geithner and I know.
