    Watch the GOP eat it's own over this one. And the US Senate will see the GOP ranks split over this.

    :eusa_clap:

    politics aside, Hagel is as qualified as any other potential nominee. :cool:

    So, let me get this straight. Dante supports the Nomination of a guy who once publicly said someone being gay made them not qualified to serve in any capacity?

    Yes. People change. Dante judges people by their actions as well as their words. Given what we know of Hagel, he is an honorable man. Not being PC I can see nothing wrong with supporting his nomination

    Historically the Senate give great leeway to the President for Cabinet appointments.

    Opposition of the kind we are expecting to see is unusual. Highly personal, partisan, and pathetic.

    I can't see any legitimate reason for Republicans to be opposing Hagel. Makes no sense whatsoever.
