Flash from our local "TV News." Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano to be appointed Secretary of Homeland Security by president-elect Obama. If true, this would leave State Attorney General Terry Goddard to serve out her term as Governor. Goddard is the son of a former Arizona Governor Sam Goddard from the 1960's, the only Democrat to serve in that capacity in the 1960's.

The Attorney General only becomes Governor if the State Secretary of State got the job by other than election. This happened when Jimmy Carter appointed Gov. Raul Castro ambassador to Peru and long time Secretary of State, Wesley Bolin, died in office after only serving several months as Governor. His appointed successor to Secretary of State could not become Governor and then Attorney General Bruce Babbit became Governor. As a side note the appointed Secretary of State, Rose Mofford, later won the office by election. She became Governor upon the Impeachment, Conviction and Removal from Office of Republican Evan Meacham.

So Republican idiot Jan Brewer would become Governor. She makes Sarah Palin look brilliant.
