When Tom Daschle’s nomination to lead human and human services disintegrated, some eyes turned to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a former insurance commissioner and former president of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. “There’s no governor in the country who knows more about health care and health care reform than she does, and she’s very close to the president,” said Ron Pollack, the president of Families USA. There might be some maneuvering room in the statement on Daschle’s withdrawal released by the governor’s office, which said in part: “Gov. Sebelius is focused on working through the challenges facing our state and continues to believe reforming health care is absolutely vital to our economic recovery. She will continue to do what she can to help President Obama fix our economy, improve our health care system and get America back on track.”
