    If they want a woman, there are some retired women with general or admiral rank who would do just fine.  Not so sure if Claudia Kennedy could pass the Congressional hearings, but someone similar - i.e. Ann Dunwoody or Patricia Tracey would be fine.

    I'd love to see Sestak get it, provided he could get a waiver.

      If you wanted a woman, are there issues with Tammy Duckworth?

      •  Well, she just won her House seat (0+ / 0-)

        so she might not want to be SoD just yet.  Plus, she's a Lt. Col., not yet flag rank, although I don't know how much that matters.

        •  prolly wasn't a viable suggestion (0+ / 0-)

          I don't know if her rank matters either.

          She also has experience at VA as an undersecretary. (Or Assistant Secretary I guess they are calling it now.)  

          I think she's probably a big longshot to be the nominee.

          I had misremembered my history. For some reason I had thought she had won in 2006 to replace the Henry Hyde seat. I forgot that she barely lost. I thought she had lost a reelection bid.
