With support for Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner waning, JPMorgan (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon is emerging as a potential successor, sources say. Dimon has recently been making frequent visits to Capitol Hill, and earlier this month published an op-ed that urged the government to allow large institutions that take big risks to collapse. Dimon appears to have an advocate in bank analyst Dick Bove.

    Although Jamie is the "best of the worst" in that group, we're only perpetuating the problem by continuing the Wall Street recruitment into government practices. The lines began to really blur when Don Regan came under Ronald Reagan. Now the lines aren't even discernible.

    Geithner's successors:
    a. John Thain
    b. Ken Lewis
    c. Dick Fuld
    d. Jamie Dimon
    e. None of the above

     

    We cannot afford to have an ex-CEO of a "too-big-to-fail" Wall Street bank as Treasury Secretary.
