Three Republicans said they would ultimately vote to allow a final vote on Hagel’s nomination, but not until after next week’s recess.

Wonder what pork they're holding out for? Only Harry Reid knows...

Exactly.

I don't know who these Pubbies think they're fooling or impressing but it sure ain't me.

Why didn't they put up this much fight over something important, like I don't know, raising taxes recently (letting the Bush tax rates expire)?

Ultimately, and honestly, what does this particular fight mean, or what were they trying to accomplish? Make Repubs look even more obstructionist?

For every day since this has started I've remained unimpressed at this colossal waste of time. After all, since when, in recent history, has a presidential cabinet appointment been defeated in the Senate? And for what valid reason did it ever occur beyond mere political posturing?

This is just a perfect example of how ineffective and irrelevant all of Congress has become. They waste time on endless political posturing a and let projects and never get anything substantial done. At least nothing that actually HELPS the country.
