43. No and No.

No, I don't think that is the real question and no I don't trust him to do what tells him to do.

What is Obama going to tell him to do? Cleanse his heart and mind of bigotry so that he does not even subconsciously discriminate or demean? Do you really think that works? Geez, let's put that in a bottle and sell it then.

Besides, should a President, any President, nominate to his or Cabinet anyone for whom that instruction even MAY be necessary??

That said, he hasn't shown a commitment to doing that, so he should get his ass grilled at confirmation hearings on the subject.


I've already addressed that in a prior post. You cannot find out someone's inner thoughts, ever. It's impossible.

We've covered the same ground more than once on a couple of issues, so we are just going in circles now. Did you ever answer my other two questions, namely:

1. Would you be defending Hagel so much (albeit not very convincingly) if Bush were President today and doing the nominating?

and

2. What is it about Hagel that makes him so much more desirable as Secretary of Defense than 350 million other Americans, many of whom are (a) more qualified and (b) Democrats.

If you have, then my apologies for asking again.
