A NEW CHIEF. President Bush has appointed Michael Chertoff, federal appeals judge, as the new Chief of Homeland Security (pending approval by the Senate). Chertoff is a former head of the criminal division of the Justice Department, former U.S. Attorney, and former counsel for the Whitewater Committee. That last one will not help him with Democrats, but he also did some work with Janet Reno.
Hopefully, this guy won't get tripped up because his maid was illegal. We lose a lot of folks that way.
I'm ready for us to get someone tough and smart in that office and go to work preventing terrorists attacks on our Homeland. Go get 'em.
