Good for Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., for being unequivocal Tuesday in confirming his support for Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’ nomination for secretary of Health and Human Services. “The president won the election and has nominated a Kansan to the Cabinet,” Brownback said in a statement. “Despite our profound policy differences, I will support my fellow Kansan.” In signaling that he’ll vote for her confirmation, Brownback is bucking the anti-abortion lobby, which seems inexplicably surprised that a pro-choice president would prefer a pro-choice HHS secretary. American Life League president Judie Brown even said: “I’ll never use ‘pro-life’ to describe him (Brownback) again. People have just lost their moral compass — which means Obama’s winning.”
