President Janet Napolitano?

Napolitano demonstrates the two hand TSA breast check

WaPo says she's thinking about it:

So, what happens if Hillary Clinton doesn’t run in 2016? 
It is hard to imagine the presidential field without a woman contender, and here’s one to keep your eye on: Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Napolitano is quietly making it known that she is considering the race, and there is reason to take her seriously.


  1. Wishful thinking by the Republicans. Napolitano is a bureaucrat and bureaucrats don't jump in the electoral shark tank very often.

  2. Ok, then the Repubs nominate the Judge, and we have a replay of the Har-Bowl!

  3. "It is hard to imagine the presidential field without a woman contender"

    What's really hard to imagine is something intelligent being written by anyone at WaPo.

  4. @Heath -

    She was governor of Arizona before being called to head up the SS, er, Homeland Security. So, at least in this bureaucrat's case, she has been involved with electoral politics before.

    1. (fidgits uneasily...) glad you spotted the obvious error.

    2. Janet Napolitano was the worst politician to ever come out of AZ. I used to see her driving around Phoenix with her body guards and I am only glad she is in Washington because I haven't seen her around Phoenix lately. She lived in a private golf course home where there were a lot of extremely nice houses and hers was the ugliest POS house on the block. She has horrible taste in architecture and landscaping and that is coming from someone who can appreciate weird houses. There is nothing redeeming about her other than that we may be able to trade her in exchange for American hostages.

  5. Come on. This is a no brainer. The ticket will be Hillary AND Janet.

  6. She looks like she should be part of a lesbian motorcycle gang. I wish. She could have more fun and leave us alone.

  7. Is Napolitano a lesbian?

    Phrased another way ... has she ever had a male partner of record?

    How about Janet Reno?

    I have my suspicions about Clinton, myself - it wouldn't surprise me to learn that William Jefferson Clinton was her 'beard' (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beard_(companion) for details).

    I think we all need to know if our elected and appointed officials are dysfunctional - lack of performance in one arena may indicate dysfunctional performance in other arenas as well.
