Patraeus isn't doing it right. He's supposed to lie to the nation, then throw up any and every legal hurtle with a courtier press telling us that he's "defending the constitution". (Maybe if he'd picked a fat intern.) Trash like Valerie Plame pull a smear campaign on GWB and get a "book deal" out of it. (Guess it's ok to slander, but not womanize - unless you're a dumb hick from Arkansas.)

With the Director of the CIA, General David Petraeus, stepping down yesterday after admitting to an extra-marital affair, it is time for the Obama administration to look for a new director. What we know for sure, is that whoever the President chooses to take this post must be prepared to come into the office amid a scandal on Capitol Hill over the Benghazi attacks in September.

It is possible that President Obama could go with someone who has no CIA experience, like he did with Leon Panetta. But here is a list of possible picks for Obama to look at.
