Chertoff, Napolitano. Napolitano, Chertoff?

Posted By on Thu, Nov 20, 2008 at 7:13 AM

This week's Skinny discusses many of the rumors floating around regarding local political possibilities come 2010. One name oft-discussed in these rumors: Gov. Janet Napolitano.

Well, Arizonans who breathed a sigh of relief earlier this week--upon learning that the Napster apparently wasn't President-elect Barack Obama's choice for AG--have resumed butt-puckering: Media sources are reporting that Obama has tapped Napolitano as his Homeland Security head.

Gov. Jan Brewer just became a likelihood, not a possibility. *Gulp.*

UPDATE: Brewer just sent out this statement:

"Within the past 12 hours there has been a tremendous amount of media speculation concerning Governor Napolitano's potential appointment as President Elect Obama's next Secretary of Homeland Security. At this time I have not heard from the Governor and am focusing on my job of certifying our State's voting results. Until such time that I hear from the Governor, I will have no further comment."

I repeat: *Gulp.*
