On March 2, President Obama announced that Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius is his choice to lead the Department of Health and Human Services and that Tennessee Commissioner of Human Services Nancy-Ann DeParle will lead the White House Office of Health Reform. The President's announcement was intended to rebuild momentum for health care reform, which hit a snag exactly one month earlier when Tom Daschle ended his bid for HHS secretary after scrutiny over unpaid taxes.

Nancy-Ann DeParle handled health care budget issues and managed Medicare and Medicaid in the Clinton Administration.
