It's Official: Kathleen Sebelius for Health and Human Services

I'd say Obama has a rather awesome cabinet.
There was buzz about Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius mid-February, now it's official.
MSNBC: Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is President Barack Obama's choice for secretary of health and human services, NBC News has confirmed.

Obama will formally announce the nomination on Monday, a White House source said Saturday.

Obama's first choice for HHS, former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, withdrew after disclosing he had failed to pay $140,000 in taxes and interest.
Sebelius was an early Obama supporter. Many thought she might be chosen for VP. Here is her bio.
