Should Obama nominate Hagel for DEFENSE??

I think so. If only for political reasons.

It would show how extreme the Republican Party has become. They will no longer approve a moderate Republican. We know that several Democrats are against him also.

Just think of how this would look to the public.

3. Are there NO qualified Democrats?

I suppose if one must resurrect the Ghost of Republicans past, Hagel is as good as any.

5. Yes, unless he has a Dem equally pro-defense-cuts

Yes, unless he has a Dem equally pro-defense-cuts. I admire Hagel's guts to speak out against our insane military expenditures.

Imagine if even 10% of the defense budget were spent on creating eficcient solar cells and better batteries, or safer nuclear plants.

6. I'd rather have, you know, a frigging Democrat.

 

It's not like "we" just won a landslide election or anything is it?

It's a joke. It's all a big charade.

7. Yes, I love having a homophobic, anti-choice, anti-worker Republican

 

head of an agency in a supposedly Democratic administration.

Can't wait to see what he comes up with for the next Secretary of the Treasury.

9. Obama can't find a Democrat that he likes?

 

Even at the top political level?

12. There is no stronger advocate for active duty troops and veterans

(who also happens to be qualified for the job) than Hagel--plus he has the trust of Obama, Joe Biden and John Kerry. Goes beyond politics, IMO.
