Are you saying that Surgeon General is a significant position? No one in America even knew who or what the SG was until Elder's predecesor Coop started wearing that wacky admiral's uniform and talking abut condoms. Didn't Clinton leave the SG post vacant after Elders was forced to leave? That post seems little more than ceremonial.

...Elder's predecesor Coop started wearing that wacky admiral's uniform...
The uniform comes with the position. It's been that way since the original appointment as the office was derived from a military position IIRC.
...and talking abut condoms.
Actually, Elders was the "Condom Queen." Coop used to remind people that they weren't always effective and offered no protection against certain types of STD's. Leftists referred to Coop's blunt facts as "hate speech."
Didn't Clinton leave the SG post vacant after Elders was forced to leave?
No, he appointed Dr. David Satcher.

And who is the current Surgeon General? This is a quiz....
