According to the Office of Government Ethics, Daschle has been making millions by traveling across the country, holding seminars and lectures, as well as private advice, to insurance companies, healthcare facilities, real estate agents, energy firms, and other large corporations.

“Daschle is the quintessential Washington story. You leave a powerful position, and you leverage it to make a fortune,” Melanie Sloan, the director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, explained.

“It would be hard for Obama to fill his administration without ever turning to someone like that. That said, these are the kind of Washington insiders that Obama campaigned against.”
Really...isn't it about time for a Change? America's void of selfless public servants?
