This is why Daschle insisted on having a line into the White House as the health czar and the perch at health and human services. But with Daschle gone, and the search for an HHS secretary dragging into its fourth week, the budget experts have emerged as the key players – at least for the time being.

Would love to hear details from someone who has read Zeke’s book or know’s his thinking better than I.
