What better way, if you’re President Obama, to enact yet another social-engineering “transformation” and name the country’s first female secretary of defense? Michele Flournoy? Jane Harman? Jamie Gorelick? Janet Napolitano? Claudia Kennedy? Not that there would be anything inherently wrong with that (and, if it means that John Kerry doesn’t get the job, god bless him), unless it’s like most other liberal staffing decisions that prioritize demographics over merit. I’m sure that the White House has its binder ready.
