    we would settle for star power as the primary qualification for a Surgeon General.  Although lately they've taken on the role of a mere spokesperson, their job description can encompass much more than that.

    In terms of mobilizing public health professionals across the country, which overlap but are not the same as health care professionals/providers, I suspect she'll have far more "star power" than Gupta, whose nomination was met with disappointment from many professionals in the community.
