If Hagel is soft on Iran and other Arab nations that want to eradicate Israel,
then that is what President Obama has shown in his policy for 4 years. This
process will put a Republican on the firing line, and not one of the
President's party. This is very similar to President Clinton putting
Republican Senator Bill Cohen as his Secretary of Defense. If Senator Hagel has
any principles and integrity, will he keep them for his time as DoD Secretary?
Bill Cohen was a yessir person, lock, stock, and barrell in the second term of
President Clinton. Their wives were very similar in philosophy. Senator Hagel will have a different type of combat scene in his time there and
looks as though he has weathered quite a few battles with his own Republicans
and likes this President's philosophies of running both the Department of
State and Department of Defense. It will be interesting to see a President
running both John Kerry and Chuck Hagel's departments from his position.
More of the same 4 years, with a deficit, problems around the world both
politically and militarily and the President going around the world at $200M a

name for any office, as long as the one doing the nominating is President Obama.
If anything changes on that, JWB will inform us.
@JWB"and the President going around the world at $200M a day
costs."That's not what it costs for a President to travel
It is mandatory to not support this nomination if you oppose 100 percent ever
day with Hannity mentality.
