Sebelius: It Was Either Leave Now or Stay Until 2017

In her first interview since resigning as Health and Human Services secretary, Kathleen Sebelius told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell that she saw the end of the first enrollment period as the ideal time to step down. Otherwise, she felt obligated to stay until the end of President Obama’s presidency.

When asked if the president tried to persuade her to stay, Sebelius said she “made it pretty clear that it really wasn’t an option to stay on.”
