Under the Dome

Another Tar Heel working for Obama

Another Tar Heel has joined the Obama administration.

According to an item by the Washington Post's Al Kamen, a native North Carolinian will soon help shepherd Barack Obama's health care plan:

Former Senate majority leader Tom Daschle, now tasked with overhauling the nation's health-care system and the Department of Health and Human Services, will be able to count on former aide Mark Childress to help him. Childress is to be his chief of staff and also deputy director of the new White House Office of Health Reform. Childress had been Daschle's chief counsel and policy director when he was in the Senate.

Childress, a native of Asheville, was a Morehead scholar at UNC-Chapel Hill's law school and still has family in North Carolina.
