Wednesday +Thursday Open Thread
Daschle is out . HHS nominee Tom Daschle removed his name from consideration yesterday due to reports that he had not paid over $100,000 in owed taxes. President Obama took full responsibility for not properly vetting the former Senator.
Republican Senator Judd Gregg has been formally tapped as the Commerce Secretary. In his place, NH Gov. Lynch nominated Bonnie Newman (R-NH), a moderate who vows not to run for election in 2010.
I'll be trying out a new feature to add to the open threads. Let me know if you like it:
Today's question(s): What power that the federal government does not have would you like it to have? And on the other side of the coin, what power does the federal government have that you wish it did not? For purposes of discussion, assume we're going off your personal interpretation of the Constitution rather than from the current SCOTUS jurisprudence.
