Quick hit: Kathleen Sebelius confirmed!
Earlier today, the U.S. Senate confirmed Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. Pro-life groups were very active in opposing her confirmation, but she was voted in 65-31 (including new Democrat Arlen Specter). This is great, because not only does Sebelius have a wonderful record on "women's issues" (if I must use the term), she had a very bipartisan government as leader of Kansas - which is a significant plus, given the controversy surrounding healthcare issues. This has been a good day in Washington!
