Obama Walks the Walk

So Tom Daschle and Nancy Killefer both withdrew from the cabinet nomination process after it came to light that they had failed to pay taxes. That's fine.

But what's AWESOME here is that Obama went on prime time news and took responsibility for the vetting oversight!
“I’m here on television saying I screwed up,” the president told Mr. Williams. The important thing, the president went on, is not trying to be free of mistakes but “it’s owning up to them and trying to make sure you never repeat them.”
It's so nice having a grown-up as President.

I particularly like the New York Times article with the headline "Obama Woos G.O.P. With Attention and Cookies"
