Wade Horn, My Favorite Member of the Bush Administration, Is Stepping Down

Wade Horn, Assistant Secretary at the Administration for Children and Families of the Department of Health and Human Services, announced today that he is stepping down. He was the president of the National Fatherhood Initiative before joining the government. Horn has been a moderate and sensible proponent of marriage and fatherhood for years. Too bad.

What were some of his accomplishments? Just curious because its not the type of posistion that is on the news.

Horn did the most to put fatherlessness on the agenda as the key domestic social problem. David Blankenhorn and David Popenoe have been crucial scholarly backup, but I think Horn got policymakers really thinking about this issue -- which is why he was tapped for the HHS job in the first place.
