Obama’s Surgeon General..fantastic pick!


She rebuilt her clinic at least three times..after hurricanes and a fire. She has spent her entire career taking care of patients without money or access to health insurance. She is one smart female to boot!

I love this woman:

An African-American, Dr. Benjamin is nationally known for establishing a rural health clinic in Bayou La Batre, Ala. — a small, medically underserved shrimping village along the Gulf Coast. Hurricana Katrina destroyed the clinic in 2005, and then when it was rebuilt, the clinic burned down on the eve of re-opening.

In 2002, she became the president of the Alabama Medical Association, making her the first African-American woman to be president of a state medical society in the United States. In September, she was one of 25 recipients of the $500,000 “genius awards,” awarded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

Another voice for comprehensive healthcare..universal healthcare I hope. A good person and a wonderful human being, Dr. Regina Benjamin is. All women should be proud of her nomination and her grit.

About Dusty, hells most vocal bitch

I am a..brown Cali bitch that is quite the opinionated,political, pain-in-the-ass, in your face kinda girl that also loves baseball and music to a fault. Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.--Albert Einstein-*
