Timothy Geithner will stay on as Treasury Secretary until at least Pres. Obama's inauguration on Jan. 21, White House press secretary Jay Carney said on Friday, adding that Geithner is a "key participant" in the talks to avert the fiscal cliff. Geithner has already said he doesn't plan to stay on for a second Obama term; his possible successors include White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew.
