Rubin Pledges Clinton Support

Robert Rubin, chairman of Citigroup who served as Treasury Secretary during the Clinton administration, is making his support for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton official.

"Hillary is exceedingly well-qualified, and I'd like to see her be the next president of the United States," Rubin said through a spokeswoman on Thursday.

This is a rather busy time for Rubin, who has been brought in to calm the waters at Citigroup following the departure this month of Charles Prince III, who left after the company in anticipation of massive losses in the credit markets. Citigroup is the biggest bank in the country.

Still, Rubin has time for politics. He is scheduled to deliver a keynote address at a major fundraiser for Clinton in New York on Dec. 13, part of a final push by the campaign to end the quarter with as much money as possible. Roger Altman, former deputy Treasury secretary, is also on the speaking roster.
