Hopefully, next choice at VA will be better

Posted4/29/2018 1:00 AM

Once again. President Trump finds himself recovering from another self-inflicted wound. The nomination and subsequent withdrawal of Dr. Ronny Jackson to lead the Veterans Administration is an embarrassment resulting from what was initially a poor choice. The person who leads the Veterans Administration needs to be first and foremost an experienced administrator who has demonstrated the ability to lead a huge organization that employs tens of thousands of employees. Being a good doctor, or a "great guy" or a loyalist are not prerequisites for this position. Hopefully, President Trump will do a much better job in finding the right person for this job on the next go-round.
