This is Dr. Regina Benjamin, whom Obama has nominated for the position of U.S. Surgeon General. As Linda Bergthold says in the Huffington Post:
Hold on a moment, folks! Obama's nominee, Dr. Regina Benjamin, holds a MacArthur Genius Award, is the first African American woman to be elected to the Board of the AMA and the Alabama Medical Association and has served a rural community in Alabama with unselfish dedication.I think all this kerfuffle about her weight is ridiculous.
Perspective, friends, perspective.
