3. Very surprised about Rand Paul & Shelby

But am not as familiar with Cochran..he's not on TV as much as the other two. Am shocked that McCain didn't vote for Hagel. I thought he said that he would.

McCain covers his butt no matter what the vote is..just like with Hagel he was hollering about anyone criticizing a war veteran wounded twice, blah, blah..and a paragraph of empty phrases for poor Chuck, then votes against his nomination. No wonder the government is screwed up.

So much for army buddies.

4. Shelby and Cochran = Alabama and Mississippi = Navy shipyards and AF bases.

That's my best guess.
