I’ve tended to see President Obama’s reliance on old hands as an attempt to leapfrog over his lack of experience. Understandable. But he went too far in choosing a hack like Daschle, and now it’s time for some new blood, as opposed to blood on the floor.

Bye, bye Daschle?

Prediction: Tom Daschle will not be confirmed as secretary of health and human services. There’s a sleaziness to Daschle’s tax problems that’s absent from Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s, which just seem boneheaded.
