Supreme Court Justice Janet Napolitano?

Vice President Joe Biden says outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano deserves a seat on the Supreme Court.

Biden was speaking at a farewell event for Napolitano, whose last day in the Obama administration is Friday. There is not currently an opening on the high court.

Biden also thanked Napolitano for her service, saying that she made the country safer in her time as head of the Homeland Security Department.

Napolitano is leaving to become president of the University of California system. A permanent successor has not been named.
