    thing - but it is truly mind blowing at the R's attacking him the way they have. And I have to wonder - if they try to filibuster him - ol' Cool Hand Luke Obama is just gonna smile and say - see.... I nominate a R and still they block me.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

    •  Lindsey Graham... (5+ / 0-)

      is threatening to maybe place a hold on Hagel's nomination until he gets more answers about Benghazi... which, to my mind, shows just how politically motivated the whole attack on Hagel is... I mean, why would Graham put a hold on the Sec of Defense rather than the Sec of State over something that was under State's purview.

        The hubbie - who pays attention but not obsessively like I do - has been talking about it ever since he watched the hearing. He's pretty amazed at how much Hagel is being attacked, particularly by McCain. His take is jeezus - they are both 'nam veterans.

          Hagel refuses to admit that it was the best thing ever.

            validation on that. I think history is going to have lots of bad things to say about many of the years we have lived through.
