Robert Rubin resigns from Citigroup

Please tell me this doesn’t mean he’s lining himself up to join the already right wing economic team of the Obama administration. It already looks as though Obama has hired everyone who used to work for Rubin (including Summers and Geithner) so nothing would be a shock at this point. Rubin’s best Bart Simpson “I didn’t do it” shtick was wearing thin as Citi’s fortunes crumbled and he claimed to have no idea what was going on despite sitting on its board. We really could have used a fresh new team to deal with this economy but apparently change will have to wait for another administration.
