Its reassuring that President Obama nominated Gov. Kathleen Sebelius for Sec. of Health and Human Services. Another individual who has some indiscretions with her taxes....Is there anyone that our President has nominated that isn't tarnished or stained? This is beyond ridiculous! He can't find one single person who has a sterling reputation? A person who values morals and lives by a certain set of standards. A person of character. Does he not know anyone of this caliber? There are so many people that are extremely intelligent who are qualified to serve in his administration who actually live by certain standards by "talking and walking the walk". Is President Obama just settling for whoever is willing to fill the position? This is exactly why Americans are so frustrated and disillusioned by these politicians and are ready for a change. This isn't the type of change I want for my children. Who among these political leaders are even trustworthy? The only way anyone can gain another's trust is to earn it. If these individuals can't abide by our laws how can you trust them in a leadership role??
