I would rather have Admiral Hardass

..but Roughead will do.
Adm. Gary Roughead, barely two months into his tour of duty as the Navy's top fleet commander, has been tapped to become chief of naval operations, a defense official confirmed Thursday.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Defense Secretary Robert Gates has recommended that President Bush nominate Roughead to succeed Adm. Mike Mullen as the Navy's top officer. He now is head of the Norfolk-based Fleet Forces Command.
Not official - but I'm feeling BostonMaggie's vibe.

And yes, Shoes do rule the Navy.
