Sebelius: Veteran of healthcare wars

(CNN) - Navigating the political waters in her own family, says one ally, likely prepared Kathleen Sebelius well for the partisan cauldron she's now enduring in Washington over the rocky rollout of the Obamacare website.

The embattled Health and Human Services Secretary was the daughter of a Democratic governor of Ohio, then became the daughter-in-law of a Republican Congressman from Kansas. Her husband is a federal magistrate.

    In a new poll, congressional approval is at 9%. When the drinker of the house marches out with his puppet Cantor, and tells what the American people want, most thinking people want to puke. I am so tired of right wingnuts.

    doesn't matter – they will grill her – and she will sit there, and take it from congress, just like holder did.
    Obama isn't going to fire anybody. I'm actually shocked that his administration ended up firing that W.H. Staffer.
    I guess if it was up to Obama, he would let him continue to work there, and just pat him on the back.
    She will be the one, who will be in that position, till the end of Obama's term, just like the worthless holder.
    I swear, I honestly think Holder actually HAS something on Obama. I mean, How much and how many things can you do wrong, and still keep your job ? (just asking)
