What Sebelius, Cyrus and the pope have in common

sebeliustestifyHealth and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius (in photo) made the short list for Time’s Person of the Year, which will be announced Wednesday. The former Kansas governor shares the top 10 with her boss, President Obama, and 2013 newsmakers Pope Francis, surveillance whistle-blower Edward Snowden, pop star Miley Cyrus, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Syrian President Bashar Assad, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and gay rights activist Edith Windsor. Time magazine counted Sebelius among the nation’s five best governors seven years ago and later touted her as a worthy running mate for Obama, but her current stature stems from her role in the political and implementation disaster that is the Affordable Care Act.
