Way to Vet, Obama: Continued
This one's funny. the President-elect's nominee for Secretary of the Treasury has reportedly failed to pay personal taxes in the past. Better yet: there may be another "nannygate" style scandal in Mr. Geithner's closet, for those suffering from Clinton nostalgia. This is breaking news, so there's not much on the link, but keep your eyes open for another embarrassment for Obama. It looks like more proof that cronyism comes before vetting with the new regime, just as it has for all the others in the recent past. The more things "change," the more they stay the same.
