Geithner Becomes Treasury Secretary

I'm sure he will do as good a job for Obama as he did for Bush, Bernanke and Paulson.

The Senate has passed Timothy Geithner through as Treasury secretary. I'm sure he will do as good a job for Barack Obama as he did for George W. Bush, [Fed Chairman Ben] Bernanke and [ex-Treasury Secretary Henry] Paulson.

 

Update: Four Democrats voted against it:

Sen. Robert Byrd, West Virginia
Sen. Tom Harkin, Iowa
Sen. Russ Feingold, Wisconsin
Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vermont (well, he's sort of a Dem)

I imagine Feingold's and Sanders' reasons were much the same as why I can't get very enthused for Geithner.
