Abstract: Let $ H$ be a finite dimensional Hopf algebra over an algebraically closed field. We show that if $ H$ is commutative and the coradical $ {H_0}$ is a sub Hopf algebra, then the canonical inclusion $ {H_0} \to H$ has a Hopf algebra retract; or equivalently, if $ H$ is cocommutative and the Jacobson radical $ J(H)$ is a Hopf ideal, then the canonical projection $ H \to H/J(H)$ has a Hopf algebra section.
