Obama To Nominate Sebelius for HHS Secretary Post
On Monday, President Obama will formally nominate Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D) as HHS secretary, a White House source said on Saturday. Obama's first choice for HHS secretary, former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D), withdrew his nomination after disclosing he had failed to pay $140,000 in taxes and interest.
