A Geithner Charm Offensive?

President Obama's Treasury secretary has drawn his share of criticism since he took his post as the nation's top financial officer, and The Atlantic Wire's Heather Horn sees speculation that a pair of articles on him, in Vogue and The Wall Street Journal, are evidence of a Geithner charm offensive--that Geithner is trying to exert some image control after being associated with the government's bank fixes. There is healthy skepticism over whether such efforts--whether those efforts do, in fact, exist--can succeed in helping Geithner's image.
