Former Senator Tom Daschle withdrew his name from consideration as the Health and Human Services Secretary. It's really unfortunate but the issue of non-payment of income taxes just wouldn't seem to go away.
When he immediately paid the $128,000 to satisfy past amounts due and penalties, I knew he would not get the support of the American public and the controversy would continue.
Too many Americans are suffering and issues that may not have received such media attention in the past are tanking political opportunities now.
As cool as President Obama is, he must really be ticked off. Income taxes and his nominees have been way too much drama for President 'No Drama' Obama. Stay tuned.
