    Perhaps the President isn't aware that he already has one: Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) | HHS.gov

    Nicole Lurie, M.D., M.S.P.H.
    Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR)

    Seems like she has the qualifications to deal with the issue.

    Well you know.... you can't let a good crisis go to waste.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It is of course, all political. The gentleman running to unseat Al Franken up here is starting to use it as an issue, and suggested that Obama needed to appoint a "cabinet level" advisor to handle it:

    called on President Barack Obama to appoint a cabinet member to coordinate disease response.

    If the GOP decides to turn it into an issue (which some of their more desperate candidates are), well...

    Am I the only one who finds it less than reassuring for a man to be officially named the "Ebola Czar"?

    What's with Obama and his "czar" fetish?
    You're right, of course, but for an additional reason.
    This guy has been around a very long time as a Party mover & shaker and his accomplishments are suspect, if not corrupt, to say the least.

    He is, and he's NOT shutting down flights out of West Africa.

    I understand, it seems crazy to question this choice, given the medical nature of the issue, and the consequences from doing the wrong thing. Clearly I'm being partisan here by viewing his choice in such a jaded manner.
