(Newser) – No more Tim Geithner at Treasury? Bloomberg and the Washington Post say he might resign once a deal on the debt ceiling is in place. Both reports are carefully couched with phrases such as "has signaled" and "is considering" and are based on anonymous sources. The Post adds that Geithner would leave only with President Obama's blessing.
