Chuck Hagel likely Sec. of Defense nominee: Bloomberg report

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/13/chuck-hagel-secretary-of-defense_n_2294793.html

Former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) is likely to be nominated as the Secretary of Defense, Bloomberg reports.

Sources tell Bloomberg Hagel has passed the vetting process at the White House counsel's office. Obama reportedly discussed the position with Hagel at the White House on December 4.

Former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Michele Flournoy and Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter are also reportedly contenders, according to Bloomberg.

4. Ugh. He had ties

to the voting machine co. that counted the votes when he won his Senate seat. Hagel hid those ties. Sure, he defeated that piece of crap Ben Nelson, but still.

I am a Nebraskan who doesn’t like Chuck Hagel one bit.

6. I've heard that many conservatives don't like him

which means he will be a good choice.
