Daschle in at HHS
President-elect Barack Obama has picked former Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle to head the Health and Human Services department. Roll Call reported that Obama's team made the offer and Daschle accepted, citing sources close to Daschle.
Daschle was around to see the health care reform efforts of 1994 fail, and has some ideas on how to avoid repeating the mistakes that killed that initiative, says Jonathan Cohn at The New Republic.
