'Warrior Monk' Gen. James Mattis emerges as frontrunner for secretary of defense

Retired Marine Gen. James “Jim” Mattis has emerged as a strong candidate for secretary of defense, according to reports out of New York City.

The retired four-star general would need clearance from Congress beyond a normal confirmation hearing. He would also need a waiver from current Pentagon rules because has not been retired for seven years or more.

“I don’t lose any sleep at night over the potential for failure. I cannot even spell the word.”

Federal law mandates that former military service members need to be retired from active service for seven years or more. Mattis retired in 2013.

But Republican President-elect Donald Trump apparently does not want Mattis to get rusty in the interim.
