Ted Strickland, Secretary of Health and Human Services

Just as the immediately preceding entry about Marcy Kaptur as Commerce Secretary, tell me that this header of Roland Hansen Commentary doesn't have a ring to it!

It's been awhile now since Tom Daschle, former United States Senator from the State of South Dakota, withdrew as President Barack Obama's nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services.

It's also been some time since all the speculations for a HHS Secretary have been bantered around.

While Kathleen Sebelius, the Governor of Kansas who just happens to be the daughter of former Ohio Governor John J. Gilligan, appears to be the new frontrunner, I say it's time to let the games begin anew. And, as with my suggestion of Marcy Kaptur for Secretary of Commerce, I say let another Ohioan replace the former nominee for the HHS spot.

Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, a former member of the United States House of Representatives, has a long established track record of public service. He has an established record on the issues that is out there for all of us to review.

I say President Barack Obama should nominate Ohio Governor Ted Strickland as Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Judy,
Thanks.

Ben,
Such a move would
1. provide an experienced public servant who can hit the ground running.
2. assist Ohio in more asssessibilty.
3. increase Ted Strickland's federal pension.
4. Move Lee Fisher into the Governor's office.

GaryLewis,
Thanks.
I read your thoughts and I thought about them and then I made a comment.
