60 Minutes: Obama Says Wouldn’t Accept Geithner Resignation

From a précis of interview to air tomorrow:

In his longest interview since taking office, President Barack Obama tells 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft that New York’s Wall Street executives need to get out of town to appreciate the public’s anger towards them and that embattled Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s job is safe.

The president even joked that were Geithner to tender his resignation, he would say, "Sorry, Buddy, you’ve still got the job."
