No One Wants to Work for Obama

I had hear this but hadn't seen much direct evidence. A name of some who had turned him down.

Via Ace of Spades From ABC News

"Democratic sources say that H. Rodgin Cohen, a partner in the New York law firm Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, and the leading candidate for Deputy Treasury Secretary, has withdrawn from consideration. It's the third withdrawal of a top Treasury Department staff pick in less than a week. (cont.)

Cohen had risen to the top after the withdrawal last week of expected deputy treasury secretary pick Annette Nazareth. (cont.)

Obama administration officials have pushed back hard at critics who argue that failure to fill key Treasury Department positions is hampering their response to the economic crisis. "
Is it that the people have gotten to picky? Is there some problem with the vetting? I wouldn't go this far.

From Ace Of Spades

"Taxes? Hookers? Not paying payroll taxes for his staff of live-in hookers?
Odd that there seem to be so few prominent Democrats with clean bills of health.

What lessons should we draw?

Obviously: That Bush is to blame."
