Call the office door etchers — President-elect Barack Obama's Cabinet is starting to take shape. Actions of Democratic officials continue to suggest that presidential nomination rival Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., is the top choice for the highest Cabinet position, secretary of state — though we don't expect to know for at least a few days. With urgency in tackling a struggling economy, the economic players could be named sooner. We're expecting Timothy Geithner, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York since 2003 and central player in the Wall Street bailout, to be named as Treasury secretary.
"Obama is not really interested in taking risks right now -- the economy is too precarious. He's reaching out to people who are known performers."
--Jodi Kantor, speaking about President-elect Obama's transition team
