Rep. McHugh Nominated as Secretary of the Army

In the fifth month of his administration, President Obama got around to nominating an Army Secretary. The nominee is Rep. John McHugh a Republican congressman from upstate New York. Before people jump to the conclusion that this move is partly motivated to open up a congressional seat I'll declare that had nothing to do with it. McHugh's district is a fairly conservative part of New York which should stay in Republican hands. More likely, Obama got tired of looking for a Democrat without tax cheating issues.

I don't know much about McHugh other than that he has served on the House Armed Services Committee for years. I wish him well in this important post. This president needs sound, sober advice and I hope McHugh is able to do so on defense related matters.
