Speculation is there is need for the incoming Obama administration to reassure the American public by showing how they plan to manage and rebuild a crippled economy.

The new rumor on who will be Commerce Secretary after Penny Pritzker said she was not interested in the position is New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson.
