Ben Bernanke has told close friends he probably will not stand for another term at the Fed even if Obama is re-elected, reports Andrew Ross Sorkin (his term ends in January 2014). At the top of the list for his replacement under Obama would be Larry Summers. Under Romney, it's Glenn Hubbard, who has described Bernanke as "a model technocrat" who deserves a 3rd term. That would seem to disqualify Mr. Hubbard.
