Third Would-Be Treasury Official Withdraws This Week

As the snark goes, Obviously Obama isn't Jesus; Jesus could assemble a cabinet.

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partner in the New York law firm Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, and the leading candidate for Deputy Treasury Secretary, has withdrawn from consideration.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.


Democratic sources said that an issue arose in the final stages of the vetting process.

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.
