Timothy Geithner says in a new memoir that he considered stepping down as Treasury secretary in 2010 after the financial crisis and suggested Hillary Rodham Clinton as a possible successor. President Barack Obama rebuffed Geithner's suggestion, and he remained at Treasury until 2013. Geithner writes of the incident in "Stress Test," which explores his turbulent four years at Treasury.
