Hamburg nomination report, with video

Today, the NY Times weighs in with an article on Dr. Margaret Hamburg's nomination as FDA commissioner, and the Wall Street Journal blog points us to a video of the hearing, and a PDF of hottie's statement. Around 98:00-99:00, Senator Sanders essentially suggests that the FDA should regulate food and/or regulate food advertising not just for quality but for its health value. Dr. Hamburg replies that she thinks that's outside the job description, but she's too smart to say otherwise in a nomination hearing, so who knows. I would hope that she's not interested in getting the federal government involved in dictating diets.

update: video not working here, but that's okay, as Senate hearing is snooooooooore....
