A Positive Spin on Tom Daschle: “The second-biggest whore for the health care industry in American politics”

Adjust

Glenn Greenwald tells you everything you need to know about Tom Daschle:

He embodies everything that is sleazy, sickly, and soul-less about Washington. It’s probably impossible for Obama to fill his cabinet with individuals entirely free of Beltway filth — it’s extremely rare to get anywhere near that system without being infected by it — but Daschle oozes Beltway slime from every pore.

Greenwald also links to good stories about Daschle by Matt Taibbi, whose description of Daschle is in the headline above, and Stephanie Mencimer.
