Paying taxes optional when working for Obama

Yet another Obama appointee is running into trouble because of their tax liability issues. In this case, it's former Senator Tom Daschle, HHS secretary nominee and point-man for government-run health care.

The Daschle scandal is yet another example of the poor job Obama has done in vetting his appointments. And given the nature of the scandal so soon after Timothy Geithner's confirmation as treasury secretary, one has to wonder if Obama's inexperience is showing already.
