Washington Post, December 5, 2008

And in the Obama administration the job is taking on a daunting responsibility: shepherding healthcare reform legislation through Congress. Unlike his predecessors, Thomas A. Daschle, President-elect Barack Obama's choice for HHS secretary, will be given an expanded role to lead the administration's efforts to overhaul the U.S. health system.
