    The Democrats did not unilaterally oppose every Bush nominee and everything that Bush attempted to do. In fact, that was the problem with many of the Democrats....they were so afraid of their own shadows that they caved to Bush on everything.

    We've been at "war" with Iran since Stuxnet, IMO. I'm pretty sure Obama, Hagel and Kerry will do all they can to avoid a hot war with that crazy country.

    Hagel is a nice guy and a fellow vet but in all truth he is not qualified to be POTUS.
