New DHS Secretary Confirmed

And her name is Kirstjen Nielsen, ya you betcha.

Who is Kirstjen Nielsen — check the link for a Wikipedia summary.

Here is one story on her confirmation, Senate confirms Trump's Homeland Security nominee.

I had high hopes for John Kelly as DHS secretary because of his military experience in leading large organizations. Nielsen is on the other end of the spectrum in that comparison of experience.  

I guess we should reserve judgement until we see how she performs. I'm just wondering what the "morale numbers for DHS" will be and if she makes a pronouncement about "how the beatings will continue until morale improves" (which is an old Army joke).

I can tell her this today, morale in FEMA is not so good with all the deployments. 

Earlier today in my office we had a discussion about the difference between envy and jealousy. Whatever the difference, if there is one, I don't have either for the job she has just undertaken. 

And, lastly — Kirstjen, "How is that wall coming along?"
