Geithner! Clinton!

"Geithner! Clinton!"

As you probably know, it now looks like Tim Geithner for Treasury and Hillary Clinton for State. Geithner seems like a win-win — better-regarded by liberals than Larry Summers, but about equally well-regarded by centrists. Clinton at State is popular choice if the polls are to be believed, but I have doubts on a variety of scores — including the fact that I think she’ll be missed as a leader and spokesperson on health reform issues in the Senate. My primary preference for Obama over Clinton was that I thought his foreign policy judgment had been superior, and I know I wasn’t alone in that respect. For those of us in that boat, this has been a disconcerting turn of events.
