Senate Confirms Sebelius for Health Secretary Post

“The Senate on Tuesday confirmed Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of health and human services in a 65-31 vote. She was sworn in hours later and quickly went to work on the swine-flu outbreak. The swearing-in completes President Barack Obama's cabinet and thrusts Ms. Sebelius into the middle of the government's swine-flu response. She'll also guide a health-care overhaul that the White House and Congress are pledging to enact this year. She is expected to work closely with lawmakers as they begin to fill in the details of the bill in coming weeks."
