Obama Makes Fun Of Larry Summers For His Sleeping, Sweating Problems

First off, was this public knowledge Big Lar has a sweating problem? The narcolepsy, obviously, is right before our very eyes but I don't think we've ever gotten into Summers' other issues. But...good to know? From Jonathan Alter's new book, The Promise:

Summers’ friends claimed he had mellowed by the time he entered the Obama White House, and it was true that he had learned to take ribbing. Obama teased Summers for repeatedly falling asleep in meetings, for sweating in winter, and for attaching probabilities to everything. Summers’ habit of finding a cloud around every silver lining led the president to privately dub him “Dr. Kevorkian.”

Maybe this is the real reason Larry Boy's been threatening to quit? Is someone a little sensitive?
