    The fact that he is very smart and very knowledgeable in FP and nationall security issues, is known to be both thoughtful and able to think outside the box, on the other hand, is.

    I will probably be attacked for defending hagel (not that he needs my "defense" :-). The thing is that these automatic reactions against somebody because they have an R after their name make me feel very uncomfortable. Aren't we supposed to be more open minded and inclusive and not label and pigeonhole people?

    Yes, hagel's voting record in the Senate was mostly conservative. OTOH he was and is resepcted by most senators with a brain, on both sides of the isle. Spend a bit of time on Google and you will see what I mean.
