A source close to President Obama dishes to the AP that Kansas Governor -- and early supporter of Obama's presidential run -- tops the list to take over as Secretary of Health and Human Services.

But the official added the former Kansas insurance commissioner was rising as Obama considers prospective candidates, in no small part on the strength of her close relationship with the president.
