Just sent another email about Dean for Sec'y of Health & Human Services

Last edited Wed Dec 26, 2012, 09:48 AM - Edit history (1)

to the White House, just to remind them in case they lost the other dozens I've sent--a lot of this stuff got lost in previous administrations.

2. Usually they all submit a resignation when the new term starts...

Maybe she'll run for another office - Brady & Robertson are both conservative senators, Kansas, and I'd like to see her as a Senator.

I think of Howard Dean when I think of health care. He was the first one to really get serious about it.

And, there are other cabinet posts for Sebelius. I like her a lot, but Dean's name is synonymous with health care....and maybe even VP down the road for Sebelius...

6. On the tv for several elections

they said that the resignations were a courtesy to spare the president the unpleasant task of letting someone go. The resignation is almost always not accepted and the president and they both know it ahead of time...it's for show.

5. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran are our senators

Sebelius is awesome, but she should stay with the POTUS

7. She would do well in a run for POTUS herself. She's had a lot of experience..

And she looks the part as well...

4. I like Dean but I would much rather see them get Donald Berwick back.

IMHO, he is absolutely the best person for this job and accomplished a great deal during his rather short interim appointment as chief of CMMS.
