Dr. Richard Carmona a local Tucson resident and skilled trauma surgeon was not invited by the administration to serve another four year term as Surgeon General. Locals, myself included, had wondered why Rich had kept such a low profile as Surgeon General. He is a very outspoken person. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19697182/ The guy couldn't even mention any form of birth control except abstinence. Every time he made a speech he was required to mention Bush by name.
