I must still be dreaming -

Speculation that Roger C. Altman, a prominent Wall Street investment banker and former Treasury deputy secretary, is a leading candidate to become the next director of President Obama’s National Economic Council reignited on Friday when he was seen at the White House for a second time in recent weeks.

White House officials said Mr. Obama was far from making a decision, but time is running out for finding a replacement for the current director, Lawrence H. Summers.

The White House has said that Mr. Obama would like to recruit someone with business experience, in part to repair the administration’s strained relations with the corporate community.[NYT]

[Lemme see, now - corporate profits at record high; tax breaks for the rich; Congress in the pocket of the very wealthy - "repair strained relations with the corporate community?"]
