    McHugh may prove to be an inspired choice, but there is no better way to perpetuate that shopworn Cheney-esque meme that Democrats can't be trusted with national security than repeatedly refusing to trust a Democrat with top-tier national security positions.

    I agree with the statement, but perhaps I am also too naive.  I would like to think that Obama is picking the best qualified person for the position being filled.  I have not gone out and researched the qualifications of Rep. McHugh, but I just have to believe the Obama folks are doing their due diligence properly.  My feeling is we as a nation have to somehow get past the back and forth political rants.  This whole we vs. them thing is really hurting the country as a whole.  Until proven different, this is the best qualified person for the job IMHO.
