So are we going to see Howard Dean who would have been my first pick for HHS instead as Surgeon General? Now the good Dr. Gupta has decided he doesn't want to spend too much time away from his family and declined the job I would love to see Dean get it.

C&L covered the dust-up between Michael Moore and Dr. Gupta, and I for one and am very happy to see him withdraw his name for consideration. Dean would make a great choice, and hopefully Rahm Emanuel will finally put aside whatever bad blood is there between the two of them and allow the appointment to go through.
