Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano Resigns to Be University of California President

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is resigning to become the President of the University of California system, the L.A. Times reports:

NapolitanoHer appointment also means the 10-campus system will be headed by a woman for the first time in its 145-year history.

Napolitano’s nomination by a committee of UC regents came after a secretive process that insiders said focused on her early as a high-profile, although untraditional, candidate who has led large public agencies and shown a strong interest in improving education.

UC officials believe that her Cabinet experiences –- which include helping to lead responses to hurricanes and tornadoes and overseeing some anti-terrorism measures -- will help UC administer its federal energy and nuclear weapons labs and aid its federally funded research in medicine and other areas.

Administration officials confirmed her resignation.

  1. I presume this means every dorm room will have security cameras.

  3. The poster Zeta on this site is a bigot....please pass it on....enough with pandering to religious trolls who pretend to be our friend on this site.

    In a recent thread, Zeta stated "gays coming out are drama queens who want to shove their sexuality down people's throats"

    In a thread last week, Zeta said:

    "which is it? Is marriage about love or about contracts?

    If it's about love, then no one should tell someone they can't marry the grove they've bonded with, they take of, they own, or which they are going to pledge to own and take care of.

    If it's about contracts, then ditto.

    I don't see the problem. Should homosexuals?" while going on and on about how gay marriage can lead to animals and humans marrying.

    ZETA IS A TROLL!

  4. I'm curious as to her replacement. Ron Wyden would be a good choice, but I doubt that's going to happen given his views on Government secrecy vs. transparency.
