  •  The Surgeon General was all but AWOL (0+ / 0-)

    during the bushie years.  In the past, I don't see them effecting policy.  

    Maybe there are better people out there.  I don't know.  I do know, people are used to seeing him on teevee so it won't be a big stretch.  He has some skill at being able to communicate in a way people understand.  He doesn't talk over the head of most people.  

    If he is like any other SG he will spew the info the administraton wants him to concerning the policies of that administration.

    IF he takes the job, slight drop in salary as I understand it, he will have little trouble disseminating the policies.  He has lots and lots of people to help him manage the employees. Sooooooo it isn't a pissing match I would want to take on.  Let's go after the biggies, like torture and war crimes, treason...
