Thomas Nides looks to be in line for State Dept.'s No. 2 job

By Al Kamen
Deputy Secretary of State Jacob Lew, going to the Senate on Thursday for two confirmation hearings, appears headed on a reasonably fast track to become the new head of the Office of Management and Budget. We're hearing his likely successor at the State Department, overseeing management and resources, is Thomas R. Nides, chief operating officer and chief administrative officer at Morgan Stanley, the Wall Street investment bank.

Nides, 49, has moved in and out of Democratic politics and the financial world since 1984. He worked for former House speaker Tom Foley, then as chief of staff to former U.S. trade representative Mickey Kantor in the Clinton administration before moving to Fannie Mae. He managed the 2000 vice presidential campaign of Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.), then worked for Credit Suisse First Boston and Burson-Marsteller before heading to Morgan Stanley in 2005.
