    Oh come on, you now Obama is political. He's probably a buddy. Look, I get that but people should have some background.

    You missed the fact he has been working in the field? That is what we call a qualification...

    Hes working in the field of law, not public administration, law enforcement, defense, emergency management. Just because you are a lawyer for a hospital doesn't mean youre qualified to run a hospital.

    Being a lawyer covers a broad range of potential duties. Here is his most recent job: General Counsel of the Department of Defense - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I have two comments:

    1. If he's taking over from Janet Napolitano, whose only claim to fame was that she is a lawyer and a politician, it's hard to imagine this guy would be any less qualified.

    2. What the hell kind of first name is "Jeh"?
