And This Qualifies Him How?
President Bush has nominated Michael Chertoff, a federal appeals court judge, to become the second head of the Homeland Security Department. Chertoff has been a lawyer for his entire career, either in private practice or for the government. Where in this background does he have the qualifications to run the second largest government agency, with a budget of billions and over 180,000 employees? At least Tom Ridge had been a state governor, and Bernard Kerik had experience managing a large organization. This will make me feel soooo much safer!
