    Much as I disagree with Kerry's politics, he is at least qualified to be SoS.

    Besides ... when you think about it, Panetta was confirmed easy for the same position, both Kerry & Hillary got well over 90 votes for SofS.
    Instead of asking why Pubs are against Hagel, ask why Dems are for him despite what we've seen.

    Morning polgara,

    Well, Jon (Liebowitz) Stewart made jokes about it, so it must be funny.....When they can't attack substance, then mockery, and Alensky tactics are all they have....Sad really.

    Good morning to you! Rubio's rebuttal speech was right on the money, and they know it. What else could we expect from them except what they did? I agree it's sad, but boringly consistent.

    I wasn't asleep, but then I wasn't watching MSNBC either.

    True, but we are not short of morons. The results of the last election are exhibit A.

    no the GOP senators are on to Obamas petty childish games.

    Hagels the "bipartisan" part of Obama's stripping of military funding.

    Hagle qualified ? Well he's qualified like Obamas qualified.
