NBC broke the news on air this afternoon that Obama is expected to name NY Fed Chair Timothy Geithner as Treasury Secretary early next week. And Bloomberg followed up with a scooplette that Larry Summers will have a senior adviser position in the White House. And this is just out from HRC:

“We’re still in discussions, which are very much on track.  Any reports beyond that are premature.”
– Philippe Reines, Senior Adviser, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton

I can’t help but wonder: where did the Latinos go? The group that helped deliver him the West and Indiana? Where’s Bill Richardson? And, on a separate note, where’s Al Gore…?

CNN and NBC report that Richardson could be tapped for Commerce Secretary.
