Upside to Daschle Withdrawal?

Tom Daschle withdrew his nomination today for Secretary of Health and Human Services. He had run into some criticism for his tax troubles, but had been widely expected to be confirmed.

What's the upside you ask? There's now the perfect job opening for Howard Dean! There's already a Facebook group and an online petition. Look at his credentials: he's an M.D., as governor of Vermont he led healthcare reform, and last but not least, as DNC chair his 50 state strategy was instrumental in getting President Obama elected.

Come on, Mr. President. Do the right thing.

UPDATE: There's now a website too.
