Arizona Gov. Napolitano to become Dept. of Homeland Security Secretary

Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano will become the Obama administration's secretary of homeland security. I guess this will help John McCain in his reelection to the senate in 2010. The rumor going around was that Napolitano was going to try to capture McCain's senate seat when he completed his fourth term, and she completed her second and final term as governor. Early polls have predicted that Napolitano was favored to win in a Napolitano versus McCain race. A statewide poll taken in August of last year showed Napolitano leading McCain 47-36 percent. She's apparently more popular than McCain with an approval rating hovering about 60 percent, and in 2005 was named one of America's five best governors, calling her “A Mountaineer on the Political Rise.”

I bet McCain is breathing a little easier tonight.
