Geithner Becomes Treasury Secretary
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.
