Just found out that the new Treasury Sec, Timothy Geithner, grew up in Asia:
-his father worked for the Ford Foundation in Asia
-he did high school at an expensive expat school in Bangkok
-he studied Chinese and Japanese, and lived in both countries, though I don’t know which Chinese city
-he graduated in Asian studies.
Finally an Obama appointment I can live with, since I’m not too ecstatic about Hillary becoming the international mouthpiece of the US.
