It's possible she wasn't briefed. "Her troops" would be at risk and if she had a conscience, she might...er...think about that, how it might play out when someone working for her caught a round or two from Barack's Bright Idea to Promote Gun Bans.

I insult Ms. Napolitano (whenever I can), but it is possible she is telling a truth even she finds incredible, and is bound to separate herself from, regardless of whatever prospects her ambition seeks. Some things are too dirty, even for the dirty and ambitious.

Loyalty to petrified opinions never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul in this world — and never will.
