You know I like simple and smart choices — I don’t like a lot of time wasted with political agendas or handwringing and especially about critical issues like our national security. We need to make a smart and fast decision without any political drama.

I have the perfect Homeland Security Secretary for President Obama – Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger.  You know the President will pick a fellow Democrat and this is the perfect choice.

Here is why:

1/ He is TRULY bipartisan — just ask the Republicans with whom he serves.   Republicans and Democrats admire him.  We need a Secretary who has a record of working across the aisle, in this instance, with Republicans.

2/ He is the ranking Member on the House Intelligence Committee so he has LOTS of experience in areas of security.  We don’t need a rookie.  He is also known as one of the leading experts on cyber security.

3/  NSA is in his Congressional District.

4/ He has executive experience.  Before Congress he was the County Executive of Baltimore County — a huge county in Maryland.

5/ He would be a quick confirmation in the US Senate because of his bi partisan history and record.   In areas of national security we can’t be distracted by petty party fights.

6/ Rep Ruppersberger is from a Democratic state – Maryland – so the President need not worry about giving up a seat in Congress.   He is moderate Democrat which is why he is so able to work with Republicans and has a record of doing so.

7/ He was a police officer and a prosecutor.

8/ And now you: you have seen him on ON THE RECORD at 10pm and I bet you like him regardless of your political party.   I have known him for years (he is an old friend of my husband) and I know he is fair, bipartisan, a hard worker and that he gives a damn.

PS Too bad the President has not asked me for my advice! :)
