Obama Hints at Shakeup

The woman who told President Obama that she’s “exhausted of defending” him may have stolen the show at Monday’s CNBC town hall, but Obama had some interesting things to say himself. The president hinted at a high-level shakeup following the midterm elections, saying his staff is "going to have a whole range of decisions about family that'll factor into" their futures. Many have speculated that Obama will boot Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and economic adviser Larry Summers after the elections. The White House denies any hint at a shakeup. "He was signaling nothing more than support for the tough decisions they have made together and the hard work that has gone into helping the economy get on a path to recovery," says a spokeswoman.
