Senate Confirms Sebelius

The president’s Cabinet is finally complete: The Senate has confirmed Kathleen Sebelius as health and human services secretary in a 65-31 vote. The news couldn’t come at a better time: With the nation battling an outbreak of swine flu, the department is in desperate need of some leadership. Sebelius, a two-term Kansas governor, overcame Republican opposition to her pro-choice stance; she is expected to lead Obama’s push to overhaul the U.S. health care system.
