Daschle withdraws nomination and rightly so; Obama administration struggles to fill Cabinet

Former Sen. Tim Daschle today withdrew his nomination for Secretary of Health and Human Services after almost $140,000 in taxes he failed to pay over three years.

What was worse is that an equity company provided the driver and car to Daschle for which he owed taxes. Daschle lost credibility over all this mess being an honest mistake.

Tne NYT also reports that another Obama nominee for a position of government oversight also withdrew her nomination.

The Obama administration has more vacant Cabinet position this far into its tenure than any recent presidency.
