Good to see Tom Daschle stepping aside. The tax problems were ridiculous but really more emblematic of a larger problem - that he went from the legislature to health industry lobbyist and had no business then going to Health and Human Services. I have a lot of respect for him and what he's done in the past but that would have been the absolutely wrong signal to send on influence peddling and "business as usual" in Washington. Whatever his reasons were, kudos to him for bowing out.
