Peter Orszag: Washington's own Tom Brady?
UPDATED 10:30 a.m.
Peter Orszag! What is it about that guy, and how did he become the Tom Brady of D.C.?
Those who saw him with his girlfriends of 2009 -- shipping heiress Claire Milonas, who gave birth to his child after their split; and his fiancee, ABC reporter Bianna Golodryga -- say he's an attentive, affectionate date. But even distant fans testify to the OMB director's wonky allure.
"It's the Josh Lyman effect," said Erin Hennessy, a staffer for an education association in town. "Smart is sexy, hardworking is sexy. ... Any man packing two BlackBerrys must be all of the above."
Air America's Ana Marie Cox notes that "he is so unapologetically nerdy and informed that he transcends both geekiness and smugness."
Aminatou Sow, author of the blog Orszagasm, said it's the "buy-low, sell-high" factor. "His looks are not threatening, but you see this potential about him -- you think he'll be better than the others," she told us. Which is why many "felt blindsided" by the latest news. "Who knew geeks could be jerks, too?" Sow said. Hennessy was less put off by the love-child reports. "Dirty sexy geek," she tweeted.
