  •  So who will get the Director of Homeland Security (0+ / 0-)

    gig?  Seems like nobody wants it, and those that do shouldn't get it.  

    Reports have Michele Fournoy turning down the spot - which makes sense given her young family and how DHS works crazy, crazy hours and is only in the news when something goes wrong.  Flournoy would be on a Clinton Admin short list for SecDef.  Also with Ash Carter leaving as Pentagon #2, Flournoy could get that gig.

    Speaking of Carter, I haven't heard him linked to the gig at all, but what about him for Director of Homeland Security?  He ran the Pentagon bureaucracy very skillfully and was short list to replace Panetta as SecDef and considered for Energy Secretary as well.

    Ray Kelly better not get the spot, neither should Thad Allen given he currently works at Booz Hamilton.
