PAGING SURGEON GENERAL GUPTA
President-elect Barack Obama has reached out to CNN medical correspondent Sanjay
Gupta to serve as the next surgeon general. Gupta, a University alum with a gleaming white
smile and smooth voice, takes Obama's team of superstars to a whole new level. While the
appointment might be criticized as a media gimmick, it's sure to be welcome here. It shows
that there is room amongthe Washington elite for University alums. Well, at least the
attractive, TV-ready ones.
MUSICAL CHAIRS
All Roland W. Burris wants to do is claim his seat as Illinois senator. But having been
appointed to the position last month by scandal-ridden Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, Bur-
ris faces a chorus of opposition in the Senate that threatens to block his appointment. It's
true that Burris might have had nothing to do with Blagojevich's alleged scheme to sell
Obama's vacant seat. But with the scandal still hot as the new Congress convenes, it likely
won't matter. It's as simple as musical chairs, Burris. If you don't have a seat when the
music stops, you're out.
NOT-SO-HAPPY NEW YEAR
The world rung in the new year last week. Friends popped bottles of champagne. Boy-
friends kissed their girlfriends. Israel invaded Gaza. Obama predicted trillion-dollar defi-
cits. If you couldn't shake the feeling that the joyous New Year's Eve festivities felt a little
forced, you're not alone. Lingering just below the yells of "Happy New Year!" was the fear
that 2009 might leave us feeling nostalgic for 2008.
