Ben Bernanke's term as chairman of the Federal Reserve expires in January 2014, but the candidate to fill the next term needs to be decided soon after the swearing in of the president in January 2013. The Washington Post looks at whom President Barack Obama might choose if he retains the White House. Among the possibilities are Bernanke himself, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, current Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Fed Vice Chairwoman Janet Yellen.
