Napolitano Makes Comeback After Xmas Fumble

If most Americans know Janet Napolitano's name, it is because of her bungled reaction to the failed Christmas bombing of last year, when President Obama's Homeland Security secretary went on television to praise the country's security protocols, saying the "system worked." Since that misstep, the former Phoenix governor has regained her footing, becoming one of the most powerful members of the president's Cabinet, Anne Kornblut writes in Thursday's Washington Post. Napolitano is being mentioned as a possible Supreme Court appointee. She's on the lips of those speculating about the next attorney general. This week, she was out front at a memorial for the Oklahoma City bombing. About that "system worked" comment? "There's no time to sit and moan about a quote that's something you said," Napolitano said. "You've just got to move."
