I think this would be a good move. He is very knowledgable and is very good on television. I think he would be a natural.

SG is teh stoopids anyway.
If this deutsche bank can have the position, any tvdoc can do it too.

SG SHOULD be an insignificant position, as those of us on the actual frontline of delivery of care shouldn't need some goof in a pretend uniform telling us about public health and the education of our community. Not if we are doing our job right anyway.
It is stupid.

But will he wear the Captain Steubing uniform?

He is a Reporter for heavens sake....
he's an md with a phd in neurosurgery. he's more than qualified.
during the bridge collapse at the atlanta botanical garden two weeks ago, for example, he was called into perform emergency surgery.

The surgeon general seems to be primarily a communicator and health advocate, and at least Gupta is not as creepy looking as Koop or that woman they had a while back....
Gupta is most certainly qualified, but I stand by my statement that the position is silly.
