Tom Daschle has asked President Barack Obama to withdraw his name from consideration for Secretary of Health and Human Services. This is the second Obama nominee today to withdraw from consideration. Earlier, Nancy Killefer stepped away from the nomination to be Obama’s chief performance officer.

Both nominees had issues with unpaid taxes. Not a good day for the Obama team.
