    Senate confirmation hearings consists of:
    Senator wants soundbite to be in the news.
    Senator rants for 15 minutes.
    Senator takes 15 seconds to ask question.
    Senator gives applicant 15 seconds to answer.
    Go to next Senator.
    Repeat.

    I have a theory: President Obama nominated Hagel knowing the right wing chicken hawks will not confirm him. This will make republicans look even more out of touch and extreme than they already appear.

    I’m glad Hagel seems to have a more realistic stand on Israel. I’m tired of us backing down every time Bebe decides to something antagonistic. How many more settlements? He even announced some while Biden was in Israel waiting to meet him. I am not absolving the Arabs, it just seems that this prime minister is going out of his way to thumb his nose at us.

    Looks like 8 years of Obama nominating “useful shields” (Hagel is a Rino GOP clone of Obama’s leftist policies)
    and “lowest common denominator” clones….

    Anyone want to bet that if “President-Elect” Romney had nominated Hagel to be Sec. of Defense, the Republicans in the Senate would be praising him to the heavens, led by McCain??

    I don’t like McCain on the panel, he stood too close to Sarah too long and her crazy leaked over into him.
    .
    Wish the situation was less like an embassy, like Hagel should be able to shoot back instead of taking it.

    Actually 8% of the populace identify with the Tea Party. They make up for it in loudness.
    That last part was funny, thanks.

    Something to look forward to Thanks to redistricting Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson is back in Congress. He tells it like it is.
