Sanjay Gupta, Mr. Obama’s nomineee for Surgeon General, “pulled his name due to family and career reasons“.
OK, I’ll grant you the good doc just had kid #3,and I ‘ve made career decisions based on wanting to be with my kids. But, me being me, I have to wonder if Obama’s goal of “comprehensive healthcare reform” (which is leftist for “socialized medicine) played some role in the decision. As I understand it (from various things noted around the Intertubz), most medical professionals aren’t that thrilled at the prospect of becoming government employees.
