Barack Obama Picks Gov. Sebelius For HHS

So that means Gov. Bredesen is out for certain:
WASHINGTON, Feb 28 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama has decided to nominate Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius to head the Department of Health and Human Services and will formally announce the decision at a White House ceremony on Monday, a U.S. official said on Saturday.

Whew, dodged that bullet.

I didn't think Bredesen was a serious pick, considering the ill-will and bad press generated by his TennCare debacle. Glad to know it's official, though.
