By on 11.5.09 | 12:59PM

As you may have heard, New Jersey governor Jon Corzine is about to have a lot more time on his hands. He is going to join the swollen ranks of the unemployed because he lost the governorship to Chris Christie.

What is he going to do with his newfound freedom? Well Corzine is, of course, a former co-CEO of Goldman Sachs, and knows his way around the banking industry. As Dealbreaker points out, there is going to be an opening soon at Bank of America, as CEO Ken Lewis steps down at the end of the year. What better career transition could Corzine hope for than to alight effortlessly at BofA, leaving his reelection struggles behind? And as for BofA, if the past year shows anything it's that political savvy is the number-one trait you should look for in an executive.
