Voting now on Hagel - cloture vote - looks like he is winning
Need 60 votes. It looks like he will get it as I have heard several Republican "ayes" - including Burr, Thune, Ayotte, Corker, Shelby, Graham(!), Murkowski, and Sessions. (I missed the beggining of the voting - so there are likely others.) Democrats I have heard vote were all aye.

4. The CSPAN2 schedule has "The resumed consideration of Hagel to be Sec. of Def. 2:15p est.
Earlier this morning that was scheduled for 2:45 so maybe this is going to happen today.
Here's to hoping!
