Here's why -- is -- wants the job desperately has the connections in Washington pushing those connections it's Larry Fink at BlackRock.
Note that as we hear from -- Jamie Dimon gets the exclusive but the Fox Business Jamie Dimon told fox does that work.
He is on suited for the job not intellectually.
Not in terms of character.
I just think he doesn't like taken orders for the same effect and I don't think -- and I don't think he likes to class warfare rhetoric the ups and try to -- and different and mom.
I don't know I mean this and I will says about Larry Lawrence but I -- Larry everybody is Larry.
Really Smart guy.
We should point out that Larry -- for -- was one of the creators of the mortgage backed securities -- and -- -- -- -- which currencies that might be an impediment for getting the job.

Key Wall Street people including Paul Volcker is at this meeting would Gary Cohen from Goldman Sachs.
Dick Fuld at that that Lehman Brothers are think was at that meeting -- bomb and he stayed very close -- White House since then.
And I know how do we know -- people -- close -- he desperately wants to be treasury.
With all of his baggage though the mortgage backed security baggage.
Could he become an election issue that is were were an election year where everything the president does going to be scrutinized by the Republicans he could he become an elect how he if he runs out and it's not gonna happen to -- Obama runs.
