looks like they caved in so she can get to work on the swine flu epidemic

WASHINGTON - Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius won Senate confirmation Tuesday to serve as the nation's health and human services secretary.

She already has a public health emergency on her hands with the swine flu sickening dozens of Americans.

The 65-31 vote came after Democrats urged quick action so that Sebelius could get to work leading the federal response to the flu outbreak. Sixty votes in the 100-seat Senate were necessary for approval.
