Why Does The White House Love Geithner So Much?

Tim Geithner’s easily one of the worst members of the Obama cabinet. He’s too close to Wall Street, terrible in media appearances, and a symbol of economic half-measures that have been far more friendly to hedge fund managers than middle class voters. The NY Times reports today that the White House has basically begged him to stay. I suppose they don’t think the GOP would let anyone else through, but still… fail.
