Today President Barack Obama will announce his pick for head of the Department of Health and Human Services, Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius. With a reputation as a consumer advocate, Sebelius takes the lead as second choice to former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, says an article in the Wall Street Journal. While she's faced opposition from anti-abortionists for her pro-choice ideology (and supposed close connections to a Kansas doctor who performs late-term abortions), the administration doesn't really mind. "Administration officials have said they are not bothered by the complaints and note that any person chosen to lead HHS in the Obama administration will be a supporter of abortion rights," the story says.
