Sanjay Gupta has announced that he will no longer be a candidate for Surgeon General. President Obama now has the chance to appoint Howard Dean.
The New York Times has posted this on their politcal blog The Caucus.
The Obama Administration just got a lot less sexy.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent and a practicing neurosurgeon who was one of People magazine’s “sexiest men alive” in 2003, has announced that he has withdrawn from being considered as surgeon general, CNN reported.
In one of the comments, Stephen Fox of the New Mexico Sun News has posted a call for people to email the White House asking them to appoint Howard Dean Surgeon General.
This should most certainly and most deservedly open the door for Dr. Howard Dean, whom I always felt would be the best possible choice for HHS, and even FDA would be a large enough and challenging enough job for this great American.
So if you agree with Mr. Fox and me, please do email the White House. Howard Dean deserves a position in the Obama Administration and Surgeon General would be perfect for him. Dr. Dean as the next Dr. Koop – only sexier.
