Groomed Governors

John Munger's biggest hurdle in seeking the governor's office may actually have nothing to do with the fact he's from Tucson. The mustache-sporting attorney is up against history in another way, too.

Napolitano: ‘Best in the World’

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has landed on another "best of" list. This time the former Arizona governor, who just last week showed up as one of D.C.'s most datable singles, is featured in the latest issue of Esquire as one of the "75 best people in the world."
