Well, she meets the first requirement: she’s Jewish

I’m betting "no" – the pick has become too politicized (Summers vs Yellen) so I think he can’t go with either of them without offending important factions.

Summers is too much of a loose cannon. Obama fired him once already. Now way he taps him for this job. Yellen likely to get the job not because she is a woman or Jewish but because she is a Dove on interest rates.

I’m still expecting somebody from Goldman Sachs…

should be settled yes,
senate confirmed it

There are still any number things that have a non-zero chance which could happen before February 1st 2014 that could cause her to not actually take the position, so no, it should not be settled yet.
