    Ah. So the shame is that the Senate does not agree with your view of what their rules should be.

    IMO, Obama picked Hagel because Hagel isn't a stupid saber rattler. I suspect the former Senator lasts a few years.

    It's not just me that disagrees, I remember many Republicans saying "up or down vote" when President Bush had SCOTUS nominees. They should practice what preach.

    Then why the current speculation on a possible confrontation with Iran? Will Hagel be the "cool head" here, IYO?

    Actually, Hagel IS fairly Conservative. His lean is Paleocon, though, as opposed to Neocon. Many Paleocons were very much against the war in Iraq.

    That's not shameful; that's tradition.
