WHO WILL REPLACE PAUL O’NEILL? Ben Domenech has some candidates in mind:
Pros: As O’Neill’s de facto deputy, he already knows the ins and outs of the job. Plus “generosity,” “debt relief,” and “worldwide economic recovery” just sound better when they’re said by a man with an Irish lilt and ridiculous sunglasses.
Cons: Would immediately be rumored by Lloyd Grove to be tussling behind the scenes with Rumsfeld over who is “coolest Cabinet Secretary ever.”
