Daschle, rat in the manger

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/23/health/policy/23dasch...

"He still speaks frequently to the president, who met with him as recently as Friday morning in the Oval Office. And he remains a highly paid policy adviser to hospital, drug, pharmaceutical and other health care industry clients of Alston & Bird, the law and lobbying firm.

Now the White House and Senate Democratic leaders appear to be moving toward a blueprint for overhauling the health system, centered on nonprofit insurance cooperatives, that Mr. Daschle began promoting two months ago as a politically feasible alternative to a more muscular government-run insurance plan."

1. Obama wants him there. He inherited much of Dashcle's senate staff. Daschle encouraged him to run
for Prez early "before you have a track record."

2. I do not
think this speaks well of the President--to have someone like Dashcle next to him. America spoke when D. was forced to withdraw his nomination. But, like so many things, the WH is not listening.
