While that headline may appear soon announcing a permanent trip to Washington, this Janet trip will be a short one.
Napolitano is in Washington D.C this week to appear in front of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce to ask them to approve a public works program similar to the ones put forth in the 1930's.
She'll also be asking for more Federal dollars for Medicaid programs the states use to provide free health care for the needy.
While she continues to navigate questions regarding a Cabinet Appointment, she did open up with "I'm obviously always willing to serve my state and my country." She does not have any plans to meet with President-Elect Obama while in Washington but I'm sure this trip doesn't dim the spotlight on her appointment possibilities.
