The Associated Press is reporting today that Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius may be the leading candidate for the Secretary of DHHS.
Sebelius had reportedly been considered for this and other cabinet posts before Tom Daschle was slotted for DHHS. Daschle melted down in a tax controversy.
Sebelius was Insurance Commissioner before becoming Governor, a back ground that would be helpful in the job.
Sebelius has deep roots in the Democratic Party, her father was a liberal Governor of Ohio.
This appointment is not assured. Stay tuned.
