Everyone is glued to the Sotomayor hearings today, as they should be. But in other citizen-woman news, President Obama selected Dr. Regina Benjamin of Alabama today to be the country's next Surgeon General.She is a family physician in a nationally-known rural health clinic in Alabama. In 2002 she became the president of the Alabama Medical Association and was awarded a MacArthur Genius award in September. Congratulations Dr. Benjamin! Maybe she'll be able to convince Obama to give up those last few cigarettes!-Devan lead via NYT photo courtesy AP
