NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly appears to be open to considering the top job at the Department of Homeland Security, the New York Daily News reports.

Rep. Pete King said the city’s top cop is “not saying no” to the possibility of taking the job.

The comment follows President Obama’s comments about Kelly in a TV interview, saying he is “one of the best there is” in fighting terrorism.

“Mr. Kelly might be very happy where he is. But if he’s not, I’d want to know about it,” Obama said. “Obviously, he’d be very well-qualified for the job.”

Kelly is among names that have been floated as a potential replacement for Janet Napolitano.

Clad in blue jeans and a tan jacket, ex-N.Y. Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik left his New Jersey home Monday to report to a federal minimum-security prison in Cumberland, Md., ABC News reported.

Kerik,  54, who became a hero after the 9/11 attacks, began serving his four-year term on eight felony counts that included lying to the White House and filing false taxes.

ABC reported that Kerik — not known for his shyness — did not comment to reporters as he left his home. He did, however,  say on his company website that he was a victim of a “grave injustice” and that he pleaded guilty in November because he was financially in a bad way.
