The young woman who had graced the opening page of the Federal health care exchange site disappeared yesterday:

The woman who has become the face of Obamacare has completely disappeared.

When, launched on Oct. 1, anyone visiting the website was greeted by the face of an unknown woman. As the Obama administration works to fix the glitches that have plagued the health insurance marketplace’s website, that woman’s picture seems to have been removed.

Perhaps The Onion can explain what happened.

    Maybe she told them she didn’t want to be the face that launched a thousand crappy non-navigable websites?

    @grumpy realist: took the works outta my mouth! i would have thrown in the whole plan as well but wth?

    @al-Ameda: i think obama owns that right, but which pose? the “thoughtful, serene” one or the “smiling like it doesn’t matter” one? or maybe smoking a cig, if you get my drift.
