    Pierson, 53, began her career in the Secret Service as an agent in Miami three decades ago. She serves as the service’s chief of staff.

    She does not need Senate confirmation for the post, which White House officials said would be announced Tuesday afternoon.

    Obama selected Pierson, in part, to bring a culture change to an agency whose masculine culture was exposed during an overseas trip last year.

    So, Obama's Answer was to change up the agency's masculine culture all due to a few bad apples in the barrel. This was his concern over Secret Service, a masculinity problem?

    And what if she's too busy dealing with her menstrual issues to protect the president? He's taken his life into his own hands.

    Having never heard of her I can't speak to her qualifications in any meaningful way and I suspect that's the case for every poster here. The fact that she is the first female in this position is slightly noteworthy I suppose but I hardly think her gender has any relevance to her job.

    She's not who I would have picked, but he gets to choose the people, not me.

    Par for the course for the Obama Presidency.

    Well as the director I doubt she is going to standing post at the East Gate but I could be wrong.
