Noam's already suggested Ron Wyden as Daschle's replacement at HHS, citing his health care wonkery and his seat on the Senate Finance Committee. But here's another vital Wyden credential (c/o valued Plank reader S.B.): he can ball, having attended the University of California at Santa Barbara on a hoops scholarship. If Wyden winds up at HHS, how about Brian Shaw for the White House Office of Health Reform?
