Obama Names Burwell to Replace Sebelius

President Barack Obama on Friday said he's nominating his budget director, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, to succeed Kathleen Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary.

The Cabinet shuffle lets Obama put a new face on his new healthcare law.

The move comes more than a week after the close of sign-ups for insurance coverage on the law.

After a rocky start that Sebelius was blamed for, the administration rebounded strongly to exceed expectations by enrolling 7.1 million people by the March 31 deadline.

Burwell's nomination requires Senate confirmation.
