NBC reporter Chuck Todd surprised Laura Ingraham on her radio show Monday when she asked him which Cabinet official would leave next. (Audio on her newly redesigned website.) He said it would be Janet Napolitano — so she can serve on the Supreme Court. Laura asked, Why?
Personally, he likes her probably more than any other cabinet secretary outside of [Robert] Gates on a personal comfort zone. She almost got it the last time. I think he’s determined to put somebody who’s actually run for elective office on the Supreme Court. You know, we’re in the first Supreme Court, I think in a hundred years, that hasn’t had somebody with elective office experience at any point in time. He’s talked about wanting that as a criteria….He’s a big fan of hers.
