The Boston Globe has a preview of Elizabeth Warren’s upcoming book, and the most important takeaway is an anecdote about a meeting between Warren and former treasury secretary Tim Geithner:
Then they got into the back seat of an SUV that was driven by a security detail. Warren put her seatbelt on; Geithner didn’t.
“Like a bossy third-grade teacher, I looked at him and said, ‘Put on your seat belt, Mr. Secretary,’” Warren writes. “Like a naughty kid, he looked back and said, ‘I don’t have to.’”
They continued arguing the point, and Warren thinks she raised her voice.
“He didn’t put on his seat belt all the way to the restaurant,” she writes.
That is remarkable. Put your seat belt on, Geithner!
And yes, this has been a preview of an article that itself is a preview of a book.
