    Gov. Janet Napolitano (D-Ariz.) is President-elect Barack Obama's choice to serve as secretary of homeland security. Should she be nominated and confirmed, she faces challenges well beyond border security, airport security and collective bargaining rights for TSA employees. A new report by the General Accountability Office issued yesterday demonstrates that the department still lacks the proper planning and staff to handle its roughly $12 billion worth of government contracts.

    Napolitano Faces Contracting Challenges at DHS - Federal Eye -

    Well now, as someone from Arizona all I can say is I apologize in advance for this choice of Homeland Security Head. Let me shed a little light on this choice, first she was the attorney for Anita Hill during the confirmation hearings for Justice Thomas. She has presided over a budget deficit here in Arizona that is currently the second highest in the nation. She has presided over a state educational system that according to several surveys that is dead last in K-12 Education. Most importantly , she is the Gov. of our state in which illegal alien incurrsions into the US since her election have increased over 210% according to the DEA. So again from Arizona we send out apologies in advance for this choice.

    Well that means that Jan Brewer will become our Gov. so we will go from a Democrat to a Republican and IMHO a much better person as Gov. too. While I am not thrilled with the pick of JAYNO it does have benefits for the locals.

    It seems to be a Third Clinton Term with a different president at the helm doesn't it. I am frankly surprised that Hillary Clinton would consider taking the post of Sec. of State though as opposed to staying in the Senate where she could do more to steer healthcare policy. Perhaps President-elect Obama is doing this to keep Hillary out of his hair and to basically nullify her position to run for the office in 2012?

    For this answer to this simply look at his motive: to hold power.

    I think he just wants to keep her out of healthcare. Dashle seems to be on point with what Obama wants done. Her going to State would keep her out of domestic matters.

    how do you figure that Navy? Was this person in the Clinton administration and I missed it? Was Tom Dashel?

    I mean sure he's using some of the old Clinton people but I keep trying to figure out why that's a bad thing considering during Clinton this country was doing pretty damn good.

    Why shouldn't he use the people who knew what they were doing?
