In other news, President Obama will reportedly announce the nomination of Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense tomorrow.

    I am totally down with Chuck Hagel for Defense.

    As a Viet Nam vet he gets the cost of war and like Obama he isn’t against fight wars just fighting dumb wars like Iraq. A poke in the eye to the neo-con establishment.

      I agree. Most neo-cons are nothing but chicken hawks! They love to fight wars from their arm-chairs sacrificing other people’s children. I think a national security team, which includes two highly decorated Vietnam veterans (John Kerry and Chuck Hagel) is what this country needs. I am sure they would back the President and the Vice-President who are both on record opposing “dumb wars.”

    I believe that the Pres will invoke the 14th if the 113th refuses to raise it without a fuss.

    Also, Chuck Hagel endorsed the Pres in 2008.
