Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps there is still hope: Summers is quite well known. And connected to the Clintons. For that reason alone, republicans will oppose him and make into a communist or something. Perhaps they actually try to filibuster him.

In that case, Summers could be withdrawn - satisfying the Obama urge to shower republicans with concession.

And the next person will wiggle through. Especially a somewhat less well known person.

Perfect! And the Republicans could filibuster him because he is such an out-of-touch liberal elitist that he might just go all the way and turn communist.
