Again, I'd like to see Joe Lieberman at the Department of Homeland Security, but my motives are entirely ulterior. ("Inching towards 60.")
A name in speculation for the post is the of the deputy secretary of Homeland Security, the number three man in the department: Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas.
In January of 1999, then-Representative Hutchinson was a House Manager in the Impeachment Trial of President Bill Clinton. He said that he hopes he is asked to continue in some capacity with the Bush Administration.
