Bowles Doesn't Want To Be Obama's Treasury Secretary

On Sunday, former Clinton chief of staff Erskine Bowles of "Bowles-Simpson Commission" fame said he is not interested in becoming Barack Obama's Treasury secretary. 

When asked about his name being among those on a short-list of possible appointees, Mr. Bowles told CNN's Fareed Zakaria flatly, "I don't want a job. Thank you."

In 2009, Tim Geithner became U.S. Treasury Secretary despite the fact that his confirmation revealed he had previously failed to pay $17,230 in taxes and interest from 2003 and 2004 and another $25,970 from 2001 and 2002.

Mr. Geithner has stated that he will not stay on as Treasury secretary even if Barack Obama is reelected.
