I’m beginning to think Hagel is a red herring. Obama has trotted him out knowing he would be shot down. By congress doing this, it will be much harder to shoot down whoever is next. That will be the person that Obama “really” wants in the job. Should be very revealing.....

Or, more sinisterly, Obama can keep sending up non-starters so that the Defense Department keeps getting run by under-secretaries reporting to unconfirmed czars for as long as possible.
This way, Obama can blame sequestration on Congress because they didn't give him a cabinet member.

You are so right, Hagel is a red herring. He’s way not communist enough

Yes. And being that he's a "Republican", BO can also claim that he has paid his dues in attempts to be "bi-partisan" and "inclusive"

That’s how they got Kerry thru so fast. They trotted out Susan Rice and after that brouhaha, all Kerry had to do was sail thru.
