2016 election

I, Virginia Bergman, pledge not to vote for a male presidential candidate in 2016 just because he's male.

Daschle Withdraws from Consideration for H&H Services Post

Kornblut and Kane report at the Washington Post minutes ago:

In a stunning reversal, Tom Daschle withdrew from the process to become secretary of Health and Human Services on Tuesday, citing the distractions that followed his failure to pay $146,000 in back taxes. His decision came as another prominent Obama nominee, Nancy Killefer, withdrew from consideration to be Chief Performance Officer due to similar -- though smaller -- tax lapses.


If this keeps up, Republican colleagues might label Dems something worse than “tax and spend liberals.” How about “tax the people, not us, liberals?”

  2. Hi S.Y.D.

    Question: Was Hillary Clinton the only cabinet appointee actually vetted by the Obama Administration?

    And don't forget, they vetted Bill, too?

    After putting Bill and Hillary - a former president and first lady - through that humiliating process, Obama then dismisses tax evasion, lobbying (William Lynne and Raytheon) etc. by the remainder of his unsavory list of appointees. I mean, after all Daschle was quick to jump on the Obama bandwagon during the primary.
