Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner lost his second top deputy pick in as many weeks to the Obama administration’s vetting process, a source told FOX News on Thursday.

A senior Senate Democratic aide told FOX News that H. Rodgin Cohen, a partner in the New York law firm Sullivan & Cromwell, has withdrawn from consideration.

ABC News first reported that Cohen dropped his bid after an issue arose in the final stages of the vetting process.

Fantasy: Legend of the Seeker renewed for Season Two..

Awesome! I love the show and so far it hasn’t tracked too far off the fantasy series by Terry Goodkind...(now available in boxed sets)

See episodes on Hulu

From SciFi Wire:

Legend of the Seeker, the first-run syndicated TV series based on Terry Goodkind’s Wizard’s First Rule, will return for a second season, and no one’s happier about that than the fantasy show’s lovely leading lady, Bridget Regan.

For Regan, it means another year of playing the powerful and mysterious Kahlan, working in the employ of executive producers Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, and sharing scenes with Craig Horner, who plays the handsome and heroic Seeker, Richard.

-snip-

After a couple of weeks of repeats, Legend of the Seeker is back with original episodes. What’s coming up?

Regan: The relationship of Richard and Kahlan is really getting put to the test. I think this show is so sexy because they’re these two people who couldn’t respect each other more, need each other more, want each other more, but they can’t be together. And in these next few episodes the strings are pulled quite tight on their relationship.

The last time we spoke, you said that your mother had met Goodkind, but that you hadn’t. Have you met him since then? Or heard from him?

Regan: No. I still haven’t met him! Can you believe it? I hope he loves the show, and I hope he thinks we’re doing his characters justice. That’s what I hope more than anything, because I’m such a fan of the books and of Kahlan and Richard and Zedd. And if he wasn’t happy I’d be so heartbroken, so maybe I shouldn’t talk to him. I think he’s put a lot of faith in the producers and the writers, and maybe that’s best because they have taken so many liberties to make the show work for TV. But I think it still rings true.
