With the GOP’s sweeping victory in the mid-term elections, observers were already questioning the fate of Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner in the new Congress. In exit polling, most voters ranked dissatisfaction with the economy as a key factor guiding their decision.

Some suggested Obama could jettison Geithner as a sign he is willing to change his approach.
