He's out! (Again)
Press Secretary Gibbs said the Daschle withdrawal from consideration for HHS Secretary was strictly Daschle's decision. Which begs the question, "Had Daschle not withdrawn would Obama have continued to support him?" Gibbs would not answer that question. Apparently, based on previous statements by Obama, he continued to consider Daschle as uniquely qualified for the Cabinet position. The tax thing is obviously not a problem for Obama.
