Tom Daschle, in an astounding move for a Washington politician, withdrew himself from consideration for the Health and Human Services Secretary. Personally I was shocked. HHS Secretary would have been quite a feather in the cap of a man who has boasted several accomplishments. The only thing that might have been better would have been a joint statement by both President Obama and Daschle. It would have been nice to see both of them stand behind, "change we can believe in, for Washington.
Thomas Geithner should have done the same thing.
There's enough tainted money floating around Washington. The least that could happen is that it could be taxed properly.
