Tom Daschle is heavily indebted to the health care lobby and owes a cool 140K in tax arrears.

This after we appointed a treasury secretary who apparently can’t handle his own accounting, and watched the nominee for commerce secretary step down amid controversy.

In the grand scheme of the moment, I don’t think the peccadilloes of potential appointees are something to get overly concerned with – Republicans gleefully anxious to hate the sinner should figure out (errr, maybe not) soon enough that this is not 1993 – but at what point should we be worried about the President’s judgement?
