An Inauspicious Start for Geithner
I was moderately positive on the nomination of Tim Geithner for Treasury Secretary, giving him a "B" when I graded Obama's appointments. Since the appointment, however, he's been less than impressive. First up was his little tax problem. No big deal. I'm sure there would be no negative ramifications if any of the rest of us owed $17K in taxes and interest from five years ago.
