Barack Obama has officially selected Hillary Clinton as his secretary of state.
He also selected Janet Napolitano as his secretary of homeland security. Napolitano’s a comparatively unknown name, but she’s been governor of my home state, Arizona, forever. She’s a Democrat, too, and continues to get re-elected again and again in an predominately Republican state. That’s how good she is at her job. So this is awesome news.
Also on the chick front, Barack selected Susan Rice as United Nations ambassador.
Good choice, Mr. President-elect!
