Surgeon General Gupta

Okay, what do you all think about Obama asking CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta to be Surgeon General? It's not a position of great power, but it's influential as a bully pulpit, and has had an impact on HIV prevention. And we all remember Bush's last choice, Dr. James Holsinger -- who Democrats blocked -- who believed in conversion therapy for gays and lesbians. So, it's not an inconsequential post. Your thoughts?
