David Brooks on Dumping Daschle

“Passing legislation is hard, especially on something as tricky as health care. There are very few people who have the human capital to do it, and now those people are being wasted because of some hyper-Swedish standards about who is pure enough to serve in public office. This is like firing General Grant in the middle of the Civil War because he was known to have a few drinks.”
