The next Christina Romer
Beth Marlowe rounds up some of the top candidates. I'd note that two of them (Furman and Farrell) come from Larry Summers's shop, one has clashed a bit with Summers (Goolsbee), and the other (Tyson) led the Council of Economic Advisers for President Clinton and would be a new voice in the White House's internal debate.
You can always read too much into these appointments, but the final choice will say at least a bit about how well the White House thinks it economic policy team is working right now and whether it needs to diversify the major voices or double down on them.
