Who is Timothy Geithner? I wondered the same. http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2008/11/21/who-is-timothy-geithner/
Ok. Sure. So he was, "a key architect of the $30 billion bailout to prevent the bankruptcy of Bear Stearns Cos." Not a good thing if you ask me, but before foresight was 20/20, it wasn't really that horrible. Outside of that, he looks ok.
