Daschle at HHS

The AP reports that Tom Daschle is to be named Secretary of Health and Human Services.

The appointment has not been announced, but these officials said the job is Daschle's barring an unforeseen problem as Obama's team reviews the background of the South Dakota Democrat. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorize to discuss the matter publicly.

Daschle was elected to the Senate in 1986 representing South Dakota and was majority leader on and off between 2001 and 2003. His Wikipedia entry has already been updated with the new title. Funny.
