Sebelius Confirmed

The last vacancy in President Obama's cabinet has been filled. By a 65-31 vote, the Senate confirmed the nomination of Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Republicans had delayed a vote because of concerns about Ms. Sebelius’s record on abortion as governor of Kansas for the last six years. In addition, some Republicans complained that she and the administration intended to ration health care using the results of research comparing the effectiveness of different drugs and other treatments.

The swine flu scare, according to Mark Warner, prompted the Senate to vote.

    a looming global pandemic to put the party of "NO" in its insane place?  I wish I didn't have to.  What a freakshow!  I wonder who's going to divorce the Republican party next and run into the open arms of the Dems?
