Bowles still mentioned as possible Obama appointee

Erskine Bowles says he's not interested in an Obama administration cabinet post. But his name is still often mentioned. The Washington Post is listing the former UNC system president, big-time Democrat and two-time U.S. Senate candidate as a potential pick for Treasury Secretary:

"Given the still-struggling state of the economy, Obama’s pick to succeed Geithner could well be the most important one he makes heading into a second term. White House chief of staff Jack Lew seems to have the inside track, but if he is chosen, Obama would have to find a new chief — his fourth during his time in office. Former Clinton Administration official — and two-time failed North Carolina Senate candidate — Erskine Bowles appears to be a rising choice thanks to his work on the eponymous debt commission."
