10. Wait...
We don't want someone who understands dangerous chemicals running the agency that regulates pollution?

Why wouldn't we? That makes her *more* qualified for EPA, not less.

And "some people" sounds disturbingly like the Fox News "some say"...I'd like to know who's against her and why. New Jersey has made a lot of environmental progress lately. Maybe she's partially responsible for that.

Of course a slug like Inhofe should have no say in our environmental policies, but I imagine the Republicans will confirm all of Obama's picks.
