Stephen Hadley, currently a deputy to Condoleezza Rice, will rise to take her place as National Security Adviser.

What are his credentials for the top job? Britain's Guardian summarizes them accurately:

Ms Rice's deputy and close ally, Stephen Hadley, 57, was named as her
replacement as national security adviser. Mr Hadley, who has served under the Reagan and first Bush administrations, admitted he had allowed wrong information about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction to appear in Mr Bush's 2003 state of the union address.

So, loyalty IS the criterion!

Of course, in putting that information about Iraq's WMD into the Bush speech, Hadley was doing the bidding of VP Cheney.
