11. Short answer -

No.

Long answer -

Harry Reid has known now for how many years that the current bunch of Republicans are going to be obstructionists. It is his fault if he does not face facts and take the opportunities presented to him to address that reality. It is his fault if he did not act so that the country's needs are going unmet because he didn't have the courage to force the Republicans to pay a real & meaningful price for their obstructionism. Filibuster reform my ass.

So the support exists for Hagel exists in 'principle'? Does that 'principle' eventually translate into a reality or will it simply remain in potentia? We shall see.
