    Sounds like there are many good reasons to name Sen Hagel for SecDef. But the most important one to me is the POTUS wants him. This is as much about a personal working relationship as any other single aspect. After all the SecDef implements policy but the POTUS sets it.

    But most of all I was annoyed by the knee-jerk, inana hotlink to the petition. Tell the President to nominate a Democrat. What twaddle. Nomionate Joe Lieberman. He can't be worked with and no one likes his views. But he's a Democrat!

    Arg.

    The POTUS wants a person for SecDef, that counts for a lot IMO. Full stop unless someone has something more than the letter "R" by his name.
