I'd be surprised if Obama doesn't nominate Yellen as Bernanke's successor:

Bloomberg reports that, according to a survey taken last week of 54 economists who follow the Central Bank, Yellen, the Fed’s Vice Chairman since October 2010, was given pretty good – 65 percent – odds of taking the helm at the Fed in January 2014 when Chairman Ben S. Bernanke’s second four-year term expires. Her appointment would also break another 100 year pattern by making her the first woman ever to lead the Fed if it should come about.

Aw!  Allan Greenspan is not a possibility according to the article.  Too old??  Isn't this age discrimination?  I'm surprised they can even get anyone to take up this mess waiting for them.
