The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

I meant that they are analogous: Janet makes as much sense for Obama as Harriet did for Bush. Hopefully the difference is that Obama is smart enough not to actually pick her.
Napolitano is far, far more accomplished than Miers. Miers was Bush's personal lawyer, and it was that fact more than anything else that led to the national revulsion over his choice. How does Napolitano compare to that?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
