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.

2. Apparently, the Republicans can insist on a wait, but might waive it.

3. Why not waste more time? They can make stupid floor speeches about

Benghazi or Friends of Hamas or something.

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!
