Will the White House Fire Geithner?

With members of his own party calling for a shake up at the White House, here's one candidate for the next member of the Obama administration to get the boot: Tim Geithner. CNBC's John Carney writes, "Geithner is a clear candidate to play the fall guy." That's because voters are most frustrated about the economy and blame for its failures could fall on the country's top economic official. Geithner has outlasted many other of Obama's financial gurus, but according to Carney, he lacks a significant base of support within the Democratic Party to assure his place in the Capitol.
