Daschle Out, Solis Might Be In

Daschle withdraws as HHS nominee

Former Sen. Tom Daschle has withdrawn his bid to be President Obama’s health and human services secretary. President Obama has accepted the request. “Tom Daschle asked me to withdraw his nomination for Secretary of Health and Human Services. I accept his decision with sadness and regret,” Obama said in a written statement.


Solis expects committee vote this week

GOP concerned over Labor nominee’s evasiveness, role in pro-union group

WASHINGTON – The confirmation process for Labor Secretary nominee Hilda Solis is expected to move ahead this week after a delay prompted by Republicans who wanted time to review her responses to written questions.


Matt Taibbi had a story in Rolling Stone on Daschle’s nomination, as did Glenn Greenwald in Salon.

I’ve not been a fan for Daschle since he was in Congress pandering, but I am a fan of Solis and have been for quite some time.
