The New Surgeon General
Dr. Sanjay Gupta has been appointed the next Surgeon General, he of CNN fame. Several bloggers seem to think that this indicates that the Surgeon General position will be used in the Obama administration as a point person on the public education of Obama health initiatives. I suspect this is right. Gupta is ostensibly qualified for the position in its current structure and is ideally suited for this added public education role. My real gripe with him is he is a patsy on pot.
