Im thankful that the Senate has confirmed Kathleen Sebelius as the new HHS Secretary. As governor, she worked with governors around the country on healthcare issues, and knows well how to work across party lines to get the policies in place that are needed to serve the American people, especially in healthcare.
She is an excellent choice, and one that is desperately needed as the country faces a possible flu pandemic. And Im very happy that the religious right failed in its attempt to block her nomination based on its religious beliefs, instead of science, which should be the basis of our healthcare policies.
