Tennessee governor believes he isn't a candidate for Obama's health secretary

The Tennessean, February 23, 2009

Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen said he doesn't expect to be nominated to be secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. Bredesen said he has no meetings scheduled to talk about the job with Obama administration officials. His name began appearing on lists of possible candidates for the job after President Barack Obama's first choice, former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle of South Dakota, withdrew.
