Outgoing HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was feted at a White House sendoff this morning that turned out to be perfection as metaphors go:

“So the personal reward for me at the end of the day are the folks who approach me, the strangers who approach me at a meeting or pass me a note on a plane, or hand me a phone with someone on the other end saying thank you.
