Daschle Out

Judd Gregg was probably going to lose his Senate seat in 2010 anyway, so why not serve the ruling class better as Commerce Secretary? On the other hand, Tom Daschle always had the option of going back to feathering his own nest – which he decided to do once his tax shenanigans got to be a “distraction.” Like Judd, he won’t have to change masters. And he can also do good by going back to doing well – good, that is, for the insurance industry, Big Pharma and for the barons of corporate medicine. Still, Dashcle was one of Obama’s better (less bad) appointments. However I can’t say I’m disappointed. Obama probably isn’t disappointed either. After all, now he has yet another chance to appoint a Republican.
