: Bush nominates Bernie Kerik as the new head of Homeland Security. Works for me.

    I’m sure he will do for HOmeland security whatever it is he did for the Iraqi Police force. Kerik is a good guy with great bio…’not sure that translates to being able to handle the issue of international terrorism.
    Why isn’t Warren Rudman qualified? He and Gary Hart practically predicted the situation we are in today.

    Rudman and Hart aren’t qualified because they won’t toady to Dubya.

    Thanks for completing my thought. that’s exactly why Rudman or Hart will never get that job even though either of them are very qualified for. Like I say Kerik is a nice guy who worked his way up through the ranks. But He has more expertise in this area. He (and Guilliani) responded heroically in a moment of national crisis; in a manner that was simply unbelievable…and they been pimping those actions for the purpose of personal financial gain every since that day.
    It’s only political correctness that prevents some from saying it out load. i can’t imagine my parent’s generation (WWII) behaving in the manner these two men. IN a national crisis Kerik showed what he was made of. Now it seems he has concluded it’s time to get paid.
    I recall a spectical of Guilliani being invited by McCain to AZ for Diamondback game against the Yankies for the World Series of 2001: G pulls up to McCain’s house in a limo along with front and rear SUV vehicles for security with a couple of security guys in each vehicle. McCain comes out the house in a ball cap an t-shirt–eyes wide; mouth open. I didn’t get much press outside of AZ but it got some. You can’t make it up.
    We got a lot of people with out of control egos.
