Can Summers play second fiddle?

On the whole, I like President-Elect Obama's economic team.  I think Geithner is a solid choice at Treasury, mostly because he's been knee deep in the bailout stuff, and he can jump right into the scrum.

There's no doubt that Larry Summers is a brilliant man, and as such he'll be useful to have inside the White House as the primary economic advisor.

But we have to ask:  Can Summers really play second fiddle?  I mean, here's a guy with a massive ego, a prickly personality, and more enemies than Terrell Owens.  He made no secret of his desire to be Treasury Secretary, a position he previously held in the Clinton administration, and many see this role as a step down. 

Clearly he wanted back in the game, or he wouldn't have taken the job.  But for how long will he be a team player?  President-Elect Obama prides himself on the "no drama, Obama" approach, but with Larry Summers he just made drama front and center.
