Summers vs. Yellen: Who are their supporters?

On one side is Larry Summers, the former Treasury Secretary whose comments have made him a lightning rod for controversy.

On the other stands Janet Yellen, a vice chair of the Fed who would be the first woman to hold the prominent role.

As the decision nears, prominent voices are weighing in on which candidate they support.
