So now the report comes that President Obama has offered Dr. Sanjay Gupta the job of surgeon general. That's terrific. Maybe Anderson Cooper still has a shot at Secretary of the Interior (Design).
I guess it's only fair though. Obama owes CNN a lot. I'd figure he'd be naming journalists to just about every post.
I enjoyed this bit from the Washington Post's story on it:
The Michigan-born son of Indian and Pakistani parents, Gupta has always been drawn to health policy. He was a White House fellow in the late 1990s, writing speeches and crafting policy for Hillary Clinton.But despite all that, the open-minded CNN was able to find a place for him anyway.
