Tom Daschle Withdraws Nomination for Health and Human Services Secretary

February 3, 2009

Just moments ago, President Obama accepted former Senator Tom Daschle’s (D-SD) request to withdraw his name from the nomination for Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Personally, I was fine with Daschle continuing as Secretary.  I think he made an honest mistake on a tax code that’s pretty complicated; however, I’m certainly not overwhelmed with sadness that he’s withdrawn his name.

The White House is expected to say more about this later today.

It’s ironic – I was going to do a blog post after lunch today saying that I think it’s fine if he is the HHS Secretary, and that I think he should be confirmed – oh well!
