The name of Google Chairman Eric Schmidt is being speculated for a post in President Barack Obama’s cabinet during his second term in office, the Washington Examiner reports.

Paul Bedard writes potential positions include appointment as treasury or commerce secretary, or even a secretary of business post floated by Obama in October.

The Treasury post is one of up to six cabinet positions that are open for Obama’s second term, as Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner plans to leave at the end of the president’s first term.

White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew and former Clinton Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles could succeed Geithner.
