This is so not a political blog. But I feel the need to comment.
I like Obama. Really like him. He's up against some unenviably huge problems, and will surely not be able to please everyone who expects him to deliver what they expect him to deliver.
I've said that the only way that I would be really disappointed with him is if I felt he lost his integrity, which the naive part of me wants to believe can still exist in a politician.
But I'm disappointed.
Sanjay Gupta? Surgeon General?
All the talk about primary care saving the American health care system, and a neurosurgeon is getting tagged for Surgeon General? Can you get more specialized than a neurosurgeon? To head the public health service?
I even like Dr. Gupta, it's nothing against him. But I'm disappointed.
Maybe I'm less disappointed in Obama's decision, and more disappointed that there isn't a well-known primary care physician that could fill the role.
