Obama's pick for health care

With Tom Daschle's withdrawal as President Obama's nominee for secretary of health and human services, Obama needs to appoint a new health care point person. But who?

Most of the people Obama is considering are real health care champions. But at least one is not.

Obama's getting a lot of flack from Republicans on all fronts right now. If we don't show support for Obama's agenda now, we could be stuck with a health care leader who's not up to the job. And that means our dream of universal health care—MoveOn's No. 1 priority this year—could fade away.

A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to President Barack Obama.
