Daschle on Health Care

Interesting conversation between Tom Daschle and Ezra Klein about health care. Daschle, of course, was one of the earliest major figures to endorse Obama and there are a lot of ex-Daschleites on Obama’s staff, up to and including Obama’s chief of staff in the Senate. Daschle’s take on health care policy is, meanwhile, somewhat sounder than what Obama’s put forward during the campaign (though Obama’s plan is good on its own merits) so I hope the rumors that he may play a major role in an Obama administration (chief of staff is what people are saying around town) are true in this regard.
