It sounds like NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly is interested in the newly available Homeland Security position. The New York Post is reporting that Kelly would seriously consider the position if it’s offered to him. Kelly has been a popular name in NYC to take over for the departing Janet Napolitano.

A source tells the Post that Kelly "definitely would like it and would seriously consider the job if it’s offered to him.” This comes just days after President Obama said Kelly was "well qualified" for the position to head up the US Department of Homeland Security.
