Possible nominees for HHS being vetted

WASHINGTON (CNN) -A senior administration official tells CNN that a list of names for consideration to the top post at Health and Human Services has been compiled, and that the people on that list are now being vetted.

The official added that the list is not necessarily complete and that other names could be added. While there has been speculation about who might be considered for the position, the official would not confirm any of the names on the list.

Tom Daschle withdrew as President Obama’s cabinet nominee Tuesday.
