(CNN) - Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle will be announced as President-elect Barack Obama’s nominee for Health and Human Services Secretary Thursday, according to a Democratic source.
CNN had previously reported Daschle was the likely choice for the post.
Politics as usual... This is change ?????????Obama LIED again
Tom Dascle will be great! He is a wonderful pick. Good luck to you all!
I don't like it that you all brag about predicting the future. That's a turn-off, CNN. Sounds like campbell brown and wolf blitzer egos. I want news, not crystal ball stuff.
Daschle is a talented man and it will be good to see him back in the public arena. He's an excellent choice for HHS........one more star being appointed to the cabinet. Obama will have the best people possible around him.
Good, move on Obama. That governor in Illinois is giving me the blues. Up and onward to a better America.
Mr. Obama needs to get his defense team ready before any more
Great choice president elect.Your cabinet is looking good heading into the next 4 or 8 years.These choices will make your presidency supreme.Out with the old politics in with the new.There are those I'm certain will continue to criticize your choices but your not going to please everybody it's their problem not yours because some won't be happy no matter what.This is a new era of change and you will make it happen I just hope you'll be given a chance before people start being cynical
When are you picking Joe the plummer for a position ?(just kidding)that guy is a joke...now he say's he's appalled by some of the conversations he had with McCain.He is about as big a liar as they come.During the campaign he was behind McCain and now he throws him under the bus.Why wasn't he honest with the american people then about McCain and why now?because he want to make money with interviews and books.Boy McCain really knew how to pick them didn't he.... a dizzy I love Lucy(Palin) and a household cleaner Mr Clean (Joe the Plummer) no wonder McCain lost the election
I voted for and support Obama but I am disappointed with how few women he has chosen thus far. I hope this changes asap.
Great another defeated Senator coming back to Washington D.C. What happen to the change if the change how about a new face somebody from a state goverment?
This is a poor choice for Health and Human Services. Daschle and his wife are Beltway beneficiaries. A much better choice would have been someone who has gone through the ranks of implementing, regulating, directing health and human services agenices. What was Obama thinking?
They're baaaack!!! We need problem solvers not problem makers.
Must drive the Republicans nuts to see Daschle back in Washington playing a major role in Obama`s cabinet! You can`t keep a good man down.
Daschle will be good for our health care plans. I hope our next surgeon general is another Dr. Koop or maybe President Obama will be paging Dr. Gupta???
oh yeah. I am happy.
WE AS DOCTORS WELCOME THIS CHOICE. WE ARE SPLIT ON UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE BUT IF HE CAN MAKE IT POSSIBLE SO BE IT. AS LONG IT IS FOR THE PEOPLE. NOT THE DRUG COMPANIES, INSURANCE BUSINESSES AND THE POLITICIANS TO LINE THEIR POCKETS. WE ARE ONLY ABOUT 45 MILLION PEOPLE SHORT FROM HAVE IT AT THE PRESENT TIME. THAT IS LESS THAN 20% OF THE TOTAL POPULATION. OUR NUMBERS MAY NOT BE EXACT BUT THE LOGIC IS LOUD AND CLEAR. IT IS FOR THE PEOPLE
Hey Senator Tom Daschle, you better move quick. Because Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is lusting for your Health & Human Services cabinet post.
PERHAPS DR. OZ SHOULD BE TAPPED FOR SURGEON GENERAL. AT LEAST HE EXPLAINS THINGS THAT A NORMAL PERSON CAN UNDERSTAND.
Great choice,or so im told.
Docs 3 is not a doctor.
Or else he'd understand how ludicrous universal healthcare is. Just remember this, nothing is free.
Another DC insider career politician... shocker. Change you can believe in!
Most of these public 'servant' people would never make it in the 'outside' world.(Outside politics) Thus once they have held a public office, they just float from one public park bench to another.
DID ANYONE SEE THIS? ALL WHITE CABINET AND A TOKEN BLACK. WOO WHAT A CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN? WE TOLD YOU, YOU DID NOT BELIEVE US. YOU THROW EVERYTHING AT US AND HIDE OBAMA "THE CLOWN" BEHIND HIS MEDIA DARLINGS. NOW THE HOUSE OF CARDS IS BEGINNING TO FALL. HE IS ASKING FOR RESIGNATION AS ORDINARY AMERICAN WHO DOES AND DID NOT KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON. CONTINUE TO FOOL THE GULLIBLE OBAMA "THE CLOWN". THEY DESERVE IT.
