I'm not one of these history experts who reads books and stuff, but I have a vague impression that this whole "Czar"
thing didn't work out so hot over in Russia (it was Russia, right?) So, how come Presidents are always appointing somebody to be Czar of this or that?
Also, my general recollection going back to the first Energy Czar in about 1973
was that none of these Beltway Czars ever solved anything. So, as a public service to the Obama Administration, here are a list of fresher sounding job titles that they could use for Daschle in place of the shopworn and obviously doomed to failure term Health Czar:
Health Grand Vizier
Health Master and Commander
Health Big Brother
Health Galactic Overlord
Health Grand Turk
Health Big Man
Health Ayatollah of Rockandrollah
Health El Supremo
Health Capo di Tutti Capi
