(Newser) – Timothy Geithner is denying reports that he is poised to leave the Treasury, reports the Daily Beast. Yesterday, rumors swirled that Geithner was ready to leave the Obama administration, partly for personal reasons and partly because of his ties to the much-hated big banks. But not so, said the Treasury secretary. "I live for this work," Geithner told Bill Clinton while sharing the stage at a Clinton Global Initiative event. "I’m going to be doing it for the foreseeable future."
