Tim Geithner: the 'Typical Economist'

An AP story on Tim Geithner's shifty-eyed appearance at his first non-press conference says as follows:

"He comes across to me as a typical economist. He's not a huge personality. He's not really good at this," said Gilbert Coleman, president of an economic consulting firm in Reno, Nev.
That may be true. But as I've pointed out in the past, he's not an economist.
