The only surprising thing about the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is that it took so long. My objections to her tenure have been noted before and need not be recapitulated. I do not know much about Sylvia Mathews Burwell, but I hope she is a Methodist. Sebelius, for reasons not entirely of her own making, came to the job of HHS Secretary convinced she could thumb her nose at the U.S. Catholic bishops. I suspect a non-Catholic would be more respectful.
