    Outstanding nomination. Personal Choice for or against Abortion should not dictate the law of the land. There are too many reasons safe abortions should be available. If the religious right would raise a few of the drug and alcohol addicted babies perhaps they would change there minds and allow for choice. However, I believe Sebelius is a very good choice.

    Please give us socialized medicine run by the government as soon as possible. The private sector can't do anything right. Just look at Wall Street and the banks.

    And I hear another tax cheat was nominated. He agreed to pay $10,000 in back taxes. How noble of him to agree to pay the taxes he cheated us out of.

    Tax cheats for Obama!

    Deadbeats for Democrats!
