``The Treasury Department is not some little nickel and dime operation where screaming conflicts and funny money games in your past don't matter. It's the Federal agency that collects the Nation's taxes, pays the Nation's bills, prints our currency and oversees the stability of the financial system. (And if the past is prologue, it can run the Nation into deep debt throwing money at insolvent institutions on Wall Street.) If you don't have trust and confidence in the man running the U.S. Treasury Department, you don't have trust and confidence in anything to do with money in America. If you follow some excruciatingly bad advice and nominate a man who can't pass the smell test from the get-go, have the good sense to yank the nomination before your reputation follows that of the nominee.
