I'm sorry, but I am disliking Pres.-Elect Obama's choices to fill the last high-profile positions in his administration. Case in point: Sanjay Gupta is cute as hell, but I stopped liking him when I started listening to his reports and realized how pro-corporate he is. Then he went against Michael Moore's brilliant, progressive Sicko with some dubious facts. I do not want a Surgeon General who is an apologist for the pharmaceutical companies.
On the plus side, it's energizing to have a youthful, telegenic candidate who people know—but that's only if his message is one I agree with.
I'm siding against this decision but will try to keep an open mind if he gets the part job.
(If you think Gupta is not a mealy-mouthed corporate shill, watch the video—halfway through, he goes to the mat against free health care in an extremely disingenuous way.)
