Obama to nominate Daschle as HHS Secretary
Thomas A. Daschle, a former Senate majority leader, will be nominated as secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services and will take on a broader role as the administration's health policy chief, said several sources close to the transition process. The selection of Daschle is recognition of the central role he played in Obama's political ascendancy and a signal that the incoming president wants an experienced Washington insider to shepherd comprehensive health legislation through Congress.
