Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke's term doesn't end until January of next year, but already, a debate is heating up over who will replace him.
A man like Larry Summers or the woman who appears to be his chief rival Janet Yellen
Up until now – all 14 chairmen have been men. But, the New York Times is endorsing Yellen, the vice chairwoman of the Fed's board of governors.
It appears Yellen's gender played a role in the paper's backing.
"Ms. Yellen is not that person, not only, or even mainly, because of policy differences but because she is not part of the fraternity. Indeed, she is reminiscent of other accomplished women with whom Mr. Summers, or his supporters, or both have tangled in the past."
Should Yellen's gender be a factor in the President's decision to pick Bernanke's replacement?
