Obama Tilts to Center, Inviting a Clash of Ideas

In another piece a phrase jumps out at me: Mr. Geithner grew up in Asia — in Tokyo, New Delhi and Bangkok — and keeps his ego well in check. He asks a lot of questions, but does not have Mr. Summers’s overwhelming — some say overbearing — personality.

Very telling. Obama grew up in Indonesia and Hawaii (itself polyglot); Gaithner in Japan, India and Thailand.
