Is President-Elect Obama's Treasury Nominee... trouble?

This entry from the Big Picture blog suggests yes and further offers why that is a good thing:
That said, I think the decision to delay the Geithner hearing has given opponents a chance to educate members of Congress and defeat this ill-advised nomination. Indeed, based on conversations I have had with several members of the GOP leadership in the past 24-hours, it seems that members of Congress in both parties are starting to ask themselves what also they do not know about Tim Geithner. I believe that we can stop this nomination and give President Obama another chance to fill this key Cabinet post with a competent candidate.
