Yes, Eric, Hillary Clinton is a woman. But she has not been appointed yet, so I did not count it.


Obama will reportedly appoint Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano (pictured above) to lead the Department of Homeland Security. It sounds like a really great fit for her and a cool choice from the Obama administration due to her success in immigration. It’s a little unfortunate because Napolitano was expected to be a strong challenger for John McCain’s senate seat in 2010. But a cabinet position would be a huge political boost for her as well.


Obama was also courting Penny Pritzker, the Chicago businesswoman of hyatt-fame, for Secretary of Commerce, but it looks like she has taken her name out of contention.
With Holder, Napilitano and Clinton (and some other white guys) potentially in powerful positions, it looks like Obama’s cabinet could be truly diverse.
