Sounds like he's going to get confirmed tomorrow. 55 Democrats and 3 Republicans are going to vote for him with several others like Susan Collins and John McCain planning to at least go for an up and down vote even though they don't support his candidacy.Twelve days after Republicans stalled the nomination, the Senate was slated to vote Tuesday on proceeding with the Hagel selection after GOP lawmakers signaled late Monday they would end their delaying tactics. If Hagel gets the necessary votes, it would just be a matter of time for a simple up-or-down vote, although Republicans could insist on the maximum 30 hours of debate before a final vote.
So what do you guys think of this? Personally, I can't really say I agree with him on most of his foreign policy, but I can't really say he's definitely unqualified and I wouldn't really want to set a precedent of trying to block cabinet appointees unless they're completely unqualified.
