In an exclusive interview with Bloomberg Television, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said that even if President Barack Obama was elected to a second term, that it was unlikely he would be asked to return to his current position[1].

“He’s not going to ask me to stay on, I’m pretty confident. I’m confident he’ll be president. But I’m also confident he’s going to have the privilege of having another secretary of the Treasury… Something else for me.”

Geithner made the admission in a one-hour interview with Bloomberg Television that covered topics ranging from Dodd-Frank to the European debt crisis to manufacturing in the U.S. The entire interview can be seen in the embedded video below.
