The Washington media has been abuzz the last few weeks with the news of tax problems by two of Obama's Cabinet appointments. Most recently, Health and Human Services nominee Tom Daschle somehow missed $128,000 in taxes and another $15,000 in penalties and fees. Prior to that, it was revealed that Tim Geithner is not good enough with money to figure out his own taxes, but too good with money to not be appointed Secretary of the Treasury.
This week, president-elect Barack Obama made the last of his major nominations and appointments for his staff. Barring a Nannygate type of scandal, we know who be sitting at the table in Obama's White House. As a result, it's time to grade his choices.
