i know every presidency has leaks, but this is getting ridiculous.. im starting to believe the newspaper are paying staffers for the info
12:25 PM on 11/19/2008
I actually had word from a SD staffer just minutes before this popped up on HuffPo. Let's try to distinguish between leaks and speculation.

How is this a leak? It sounds like this is an announcement.

Hillary messed up on healthcare reform 16 yrs ago because of her ego; we don't need her in there doing the same thing this round.

Exactly! She had her sh-ot at it and she was a substantial failure.
12:26 PM on 11/19/2008
I tend to disagree with you here on your basic premise. On the other hand, Hillary did lose some of her clout on account of the incident.
12:26 PM on 11/19/2008
I agree, but I don't think she would have taken it. Not high profile enough for her to be willing to leave the Senate.

Obama seems to be the one mature and stable person in this whole transition process - but I think Daschle send a strong partisan message. ...................

GREAT!!!
12:14 PM on 11/19/2008
If this is true, Dashle Congradulations!!
He was one of the first people behind Obama from the very begining.
This is exciting
12:14 PM on 11/19/2008
It will be good to see Daschle back in action. I kind of miss him.

I thought Howard Dean would be Health & Human Services.
12:26 PM on 11/19/2008
Nah, as much as I like Dean, he would not have been the right pick. If Obama wants to get a health care plan through Congress he needs someone who knows how to work the Congress.

No, giving me catnip was actually your idea.

Thank you . . . for knowing your place!

Daschle will be a remarkable HHS Secretary.

Perhaps now, we will see positive movement based on reality and responsibility . . . and not some absurd attempt to keep us in the realm of ignorance and (last century's) regressive GOP fundamentalism. Enough with the stupidity!

Can the press stop reporting the leaks.

It is is really straining the transition.

Its called responsible journalism (unless Obama is purposely leaking in order to have media/blog vetting)
12:19 PM on 11/19/2008
HAHA "Responsible Journalism".... I did not see you asking for that during the election process... Just another case of a Lib asking for the rules to only apply to them.

If I had a dollar for everytime we asked for "Responsible Journalism" during the election I'd be a billionaire.

If it is said that Tom Daschle accepted; I don't see how the Obama Trasition Team is putting it out there for us to approve.

Good pick Mr. President.

Just one more pick in Obama's Clinton administration. He is being a "community organizer" here. When you go into a community you don't alienate the power brokers, you convert and go to their church and sit there patiently for 20 years.
Tom Daschle??!!??? A Joke. Like Lieberman. A useless waste of space. It just tells me that he is going to sell out health care to the insurance companies. An independent board like the Fed.?! Give me a break. Take a good look at what the Fed has done for us. The People gave up control of their economy to a private group of bankers. Now we are going to give up heath care to a private board of "industry professionals". And in the process they will wipe out Medicare, which was bad enough, in order to give us something worse. HHS should have gone to Howard Dean or Mrs Edwards. Someone with the courage to fight FIGHT, not cave in.
Everydamn thing Obama has done so far, is cave in. I was willing to tolerate Emmanuel and Clinton because I thought he was going for cover when he negotiates with Iran. But now that I see what he is doing with Daschle and Lieberman, I know I am seeing a weasle at work.
If I had wanted another Clinton administration I would have voted for Clinton. I have been HAD! And so have you!
