Just inside 100 days, Sebelius completes the Cabinet

Washington Post, April 29, 2009
President Obama's Cabinet was finally filled after the Senate, on the eve of President Obama's 100th day in office, voted 65 to 31 to confirm Kathleen Sebelius to head the Department of Health and Human Services. Hours later, the former Kansas governor was sworn in in an Oval Office ceremony. Democrats had sought a quick vote on Sebelius as Congress moves ahead with healthcare reform this summer, but Republicans slowed her advancement.
