Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius may stay in the position for another term in order to follow through on implementation of President Barack Obama's healthcare reform laws.
HHS's Sebelius may stay for another term
Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius might stay for a 2nd term, which would be unusual for someone in that position, according to a Kaiser Health News report.
"Only one HHS secretary has stayed on that long, and the job was much easier then," said an un-named former administration official, referring to Clinton-era HHS secretary Dona Shalala, who held the position for 8 years. "As for Sebelius, it's hard to say."
"She's got a helluva lot of energy and wants to see things through, so I expect she'll stay for at least part of a second term," the official added.
