White Smoke Soon?

***BUMPED AND UPDATED - New posts below********
From Navy Times.....

New CNO pick could come any time, sources say

The Navy’s search for a new chief of naval operations is underway, with an announcement of a nominee expected to come as early as this week, sources tell Navy Times.

You better get down and vote. Or waffle and change your vote, like some people.

***********UPDATE***************
Here's part of an email from a secret source....(OK, secret source says I can credit him, it's Steeljaw Scribe)...........
Now here's some interesting news -- Willard was recalled to CONUS on Monday (via a late sunday night call), so of course speculation is rampant that he might be the pick over Roughhead... Starts lining up with some of the backwah I've heard of late, especially from a community-representation standpoint.
My reaction? NO NO NO!

You worried you won't be able to claim a W?

Seriously? I didn't randomly pick Roughead. I read and carefully considered all candidates. I am not mindlessly parroting someone else's choice. I called this right out of the box on 8 JUN before I knew he would be the front runner. I think he is the best man for the job. Having the right person in that position is not something I take lightly.

Bonus - When my choice wins, I will rub your nose in it without mercy, you bastid!

And it's a "V", not a "W". I'd offer to use smaller words, but I dumb it down for you much further than a letter,can I? (Am I in trouble yet?)

The word trouble does not even begin to describe what you are in!
