For the Record:
If it's Mary Margaret Graham... we can kiss reform of the CIA goodbye.
One word best describes Mary Margaret: BUREAUCRAT. Her picture should be next to that word in the dictionary.
I can think of worse choices (David Shedd comes to mind) for Director, Central Intelligence Agency... but not much worse.
We (this nation) need a tough-as-nails leader and an innovative thinker at the CIA if we want to fix what's wrong with that agency. What we do NOT need is a BUREAUCRAT.
I'm not sold on General Mike Hayden. He was a good DIRNSA (Director, National Security Agency), but the CIA is another animal altogether. Some senators on the Senate Select Committee for Intelligence have expressed concern that GEN Hayden would be the wrong pick because he's military. That's not the concern I have.
Military or civilian -- we need someone who will kick ass on BUREAUCRATS and LEAKERS and who will let the clandestine side of the house do what needs to be done to help defeat the Islamists.
UPDATE: Today, the President nominated General Hayden.
