    Thanks Ron for the role of playing the set-up man on this article. Marion Berry, probation for not paying his taxes. Doesn’t that make him a prime candidate for an Obama nomination? Perhaps a federal judge position. With his understanding of the difficulties of dealing with drug addiction, I’m sure a wise convicted felon could reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.

    No. While embarrassing things have come out on some nominees after the were named, Obama would not be likely to chose Barry for any positions with what is known about him.

    It’s also worth noting that there is a difference between tax problems, which many people who pay tax accountants to handle their taxes have because of the decisions said tax accountants make (and for which the customer is entirely responsible, legally, regardless of their degree of personal blame) and a recidivist like Barry, who is clearly of the notion he can do as he pleases. This is not a rare notion among politicians at all. Witness Mark Sanford or Mark Foley. 😉
