Lots of strong reaction, both ways, to the news that President Obama has nominated Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (D) to be the next secretary of health and human services.

But that's not nearly as exciting as this: We have a winner in our "be the first to predict the next HHS secretary and win a genuine Nixon for president button from 1968."

While millions of Americans are wasting time trying to figure out why a Nixon button, we are focusing on announcing the winner. And that is ... Cheryl Weller of West Orange, N.J.

In submitting her entry on Feb. 6, Cheryl wrote, "I'm doing this to get the Nixon button and for the glory."

Well, she gets both. Congratulations!
