Janet Napolitano won't say she won't run -- film at 11
One things that newspapers like to do is run stories that so-and-so hasn't ruled out a run for a certain political office when the only thing the person did was basically ignore the question.
The Washington Examiner, which is sort of a newspaper, ran a story yesterday saying Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano "didn't rule out a potential [presidential] bid":
The former long-serving Arizona governor instead brushed off the question, joking that she's too busy keeping U.S. borders safe to consider a race.
At a breakfast interview hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, she said, "my plate is so full now that that kind of contemplation would be the kind of thing that would keep me up at night, and I lose enough sleep as it is."
Napolitano is a Democrat. And do you know who else is a Democrat? Hillary Clinton. And Ms. Clinton is running, so no need to waste any time thinking about which other Democrats aren't formally ruling it out.
