Napolitano The cabinet pick trial balloon du jour is Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano for Homeland Security.

The AP story quotes Napolitano's remark that building a 50-foot fence only encourages people to use 51-foot ladders. Remember also that she signed Arizona's strict immigration and employer verification law.

Here's Josh's piece about how the Democrat prospered in a still-red state.

I have to admit that I hadn't known or remembered that she was Anita Hill's lawyer until it's gotten mention in recent speculative stories about Napolitano's prospects.

She does seem to have been the most-mentioned governor of late. I'm wondering whether supporters such as Tim Kaine, Bill Richardson and Deval Patrick are going to get anything. I expect surprise picks are more likely to happen than any prediction I might make, however.
