Very early in Obama’s first term, within a week or two I think, they brought Tom Daschle up on the Hill to testify about something or other.

What struck me in the video of that was the way that Daschle was dressed. Designer frames, Italian shoes, Armani suit and Rolex. The very picture of a man who had done really, really well for himself.

In retrospect they did this to deliver a message to the Democrat Caucus. “You can have a very good life after leaving Congress. Have no fear of casting the tough votes that Obama will ask you for. If you suffer the wrath of the voters and lose your seat, we’ve gotcha covered!”
