I like Chuck Hagel. In fact I fully support his nomination by President Obama to the position of Secretary of Defense. He is ultimately qualified and capable of executing the duties of said position. Senator McCain's views aside.

Actually the biggest reason to support this nomination is because it riles the establishment RHINOS to the point of frenzy. Indeed the modern rEpublican party is working hard at attaining irrelevancy.

ABC World News - Facing a rocky confirmation process, Chuck Hagel today defended his record before his former Senate colleagues, including an openly impatient Sen. John McCain.

  1. Hagel ruffled a few feathers here and there when said a few things regarding the Middle East, Israel, and general US policy over there, over the years. He actually made some pretty obvious and fair points with those controversial comments, and they didn't seem mean-spirited, or "anti-Israel." Leery of the neocon movement, maybe... but not malicious or outside the mainstream.

    Most people are leery of the neocons, and most now realize the war in Iraq was at best a terrible mistake, the Israeli/Palestinian issue is annoyingly old and tired, and hawkish talk about Iran is not welcome.

    The American people are tired of war. Hagel could actually give us a bit of rest. Some people really don't like that.

    1. On this issue we are essentially in agreement.

      Neocons are ones to be leery of. As are the most Extreme in the socon camp. You know the ones I'm talking about, the Bible, guns, and country folks that have become indoctrinated rather than educated.
