White House Assembles List of Bernanke Successors

Wall Street Journal: "The Obama administration has quietly begun assembling a short list of candidates for the Federal Reserve chairmanship, in the expectation that Ben Bernanke will step down when his second term ends in January."

"Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew is putting together the list, working closely with a small number of senior White House officials. President Barack Obama could try to convince Mr. Bernanke to serve a third four-year term. But many of Mr. Bernanke's friends and associates believe he wants to step down when his term expires."
