Keep 'Em Guessing

In a scene from CNN's "Planet in Peril," Dr. Sanjay Gupta stands in a body of water in Africa.

Fresh on the heels of the Panetta for CIA announcement / leak (which caught not a few folks off guard) word on the internets today is that Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN fame will be the pick for Surgeon General (if he can stand to take the pay cut that is).

Gupta actually sounds like a decent pick when you learn a bit more about him (accomplished neurosurgeon and White House fellow with experience in speeches and policy for Hillary Clinton).

And a high profile surgeon general could be a boon for medical research and health care as well.
