Who will replace Shinseki at the VA?


Kevin Cirilli of The Hill writes about five possible replacements for Eric Shinseki as Secretary of Veterans Affairs.

His list includes Senator Jack Reed, General Stanley McChrystal, General Peter Chiarelli, Admiral Michael Mullen, and Representative Tim Walz.

This list leaves one out that I think makes the most sense after reading an oped endorsing the move –

former Senator Jim Webb, who also previously served as Secretary of the Navy.
