7. Sing it, Seafan!
But I think our infrastructure, environment, etc. have much bigger problems that whom Obama appoints to be Secretary of Treasury.

Geithner was Secretary because Obama nominated him. He stayed Secretary because Obama did not want to fire him. He reported to Obama. None of his recommendations were binding upon Obama, nor was Geithner Obama's only source of financial advice. Ultimately, Obama did want he wanted to do.

The same will be the case no matter who Obama chooses to replace Geithner.

Not only that, but Obama is not the problem either.

The next person who is the Democratic nominee will be a lot like Obama, or to his right.

The Democratic Party is not in the business of being liberal.
