On Friday, President Obama appeared at the White House to announce the resignation of Secretary of the Health and Human Services Department, Kathleen Sebelius. You’d think healthcare would be on his mind all day. Instead, hours later, he was talking about voting rights at the National Action Network annual conference.
The conference, an event hosted by Rev. Al Sharpton‘s civil rights organization, was certainly an appropriate place to broach the topic. And the way he used his speech to present the topic is actually one that will extend beyond the Sheraton ballroom where he delivered it.
