Geithner on Budget Deal Outlook: Political Capital Play

Nov. 16 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner talks with Bloomberg's Al Hunt about today's meeting between President Barack Obama and congressional leaders on ways to reduce the federal deficit and debt, and prospects for an agreement to avert the so-called fiscal cliff. Senator Robert Portman, a Republican from Ohio, discusses tax cuts and United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice as a possible nominee as the next secretary of state. Bloomberg's Indira Lakshmanan reports on the possible nomination of Rice as secretary of state and the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Commentators Margaret Carlson and Kate O'Beirne discuss Mitt Romney's comments in a conference call with donors on Nov. 14 on why he lost the presidential election. (Source: Bloomberg)
