24. John Warner was one of the relatively decent Republicans

He singlehandedly pretty much kept Oliver North out of the US Senate by encouraging another Republican to run as an independent candidate.

The independent candidate gave enough cover for people who didn't want to vote for North but who couldn't bring themselves to vote for Chuck Robb due to political policy differences.

co-sponsored the Brady Bill, co-sponsored the ban on assault rifles bill with Diane Feinstein. He was a reasonable Republican. There are no more of those currently serving in the halls of government now.

He didn't seek reelection and was replaced by Mark Warner in 2008.

Yeah, John Warner was a good guy until he rubbed stamped all of W's policies. He left when he realized he should have stood up to Bush and Cheney.

82. Levin was blindsided by Cruz using bits of tape out of context.

Dishonest and slimy, as all chickenhawks are.

I am a real wuss when it comes to Republicans grilling & hating.

91. They are asking him more Israel questions than Kerry--and Hagel does not control foreign policy.

It's insane.

94. Their job is to trip him up, provoke him into an angry display, or force him to make a

statement that either disqualifies him, or refutes the Obama administration's positions. They are not winning so far. Edit to add: they know he's well-qualified, they have no intention of actually using their time well.

102. Thank you Carl Levin--those assholes didn't even ask him for certain financial things until

yesterday--AND he doesn't have copies of some of his speeches, and he gave them under contract to private parties. What dishonest assholes the Republicans are.

103. Inhofe cutting Hagel off whenever Hagel answers well. That's what they've been doing all day.

Edit to add: just did it again, in regard to Obama being a strong supporter with Israel. Hagel defended Obama well, time to cut him off.

104. Global warming denier Inhofe trying to get Hagel to agree to anti-environmental fuel policies.

Sounds like Inhofe thinks Hagel will be confirmed--asking him REAL defense questions now.
