How About Ike for Secretary of Defense? [OPINION]

Since the re-election of President Barack Obama, there have been several Presidential Cabinet members that announced they would step down, or it is speculated some may step down from their second term. It is speculated that Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta may step down. It is said that John Kerry, Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter and former defense policy undersecretary Michele Flournoy could fill Panetta's shoes whenever he decides to step down or if he does.

I would like to hear another consideration should the time come, Missouri's very own and former Congressman Ike Skelton. Skelton served as U.S. Representative for Missouri from 1977-2011, was a member of the House Armed Services Committee and even chaired it from 2006-2011.

Dead Candidate Wins Election in Alabama

If there's any doubt how strong the GOP's hold on Alabama is, consider this -- a Republican nominee beat out the Democratic incumbent for a seat on the Bibb County Commission last week despite the fact that he died a month earlier. Congratulations, Alabama, on taking partisanship to a whole new level.

Team Romney Mistakenly Leaks Victory Website

If, as some pundits claim, gaffes were responsible for Mitt Romney's failed presidential bid, then this surely won't change that assertion. At some point after losing the election to Barack Obama, Romney's camp accidentally leaked a victory website promoting a win that never happened. It's the 'Dewey Defeats Truman' of the digital age.

Were Election Projections Announced Too Early During Election Coverage? [OPINION]

The election is now behind us, and after getting a chance to cover the election results from the Pettis County Courthouse, I had the chance to finally watch the national coverage. I have to say, this will not be a rant on the results and whether I agreed with them or not because I think you have received enough of that in the last 24 hours.  However, some of you wanted to talk about the coverage, especially the national items.
