So, (ex) Senator Chuck Hagel has been nominated to be the Secretary of Defense.
He's having a hard time and may be filibustered by the Republicans - who were his colleagues.
Hmmm... Will it be bad? Probably not, because he's got the support of the CPUSA:
He [Hagel] does, however, represent the more sober elements who have called in our national discourse for rejection of the old cold war tactics, the unilateralism and the continual push for wars all over the world.I predict that he'll get the same warm treatment that Hillary got (with the exception of Sen. Rand Paul!) in her acceptance of the blame for the consulate tragedy/debacle in Libya.
