Bill Clinton's former drug czar Barry McCaffrey told FOXNews.com that Kerlikowske is a wise choice.


Would this be really a "Wise Guy", as Clinton's man says? Any of you New Yorkers, Jerseyites, Chicagoans know this guy from the paper?

Whoops



(Newser) – President Obama will officially nominate Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske to be drug czar today, reports the Seattle Times. Though the job is being demoted from its Bush administration Cabinet status, Kerlikowske will have “a direct line to the president and vice president,” says an official. Drug law reformers view Kerlikowske, who said Seattle marijuana arrests were not a priority, as an ally.

Kerlikowske was rumored to be Obama’s pick for weeks, but the nomination was held up by the arrest last week of his son, whose police record includes marijuana possession and distribution. The nominee is expected to acknowledge his son's problems in accepting Obama’s offer. “As a police officer, but also in my own family, I have experienced firsthand the devastating effects that drugs can have,” says his prepared statement.

Who cares, as a good Democrat the kid most likely must not inhale.
