    I'm not talking about judges. Judges have often been held up by both parties. I'm talking about cabinet members. When Republicans even oppose a Republican it screams volumes about the party of NO and their efforts to oppose everything that Obama does.

    I'm open to you showing us what legal precendence shows that Hagel is not qualified.

    Perhaps he'd have received less republican friction to his nomination if he had the distinguished track record of heading up the International Arabian Horse Association.

    "Cabinet level" was not part of the discussion.

    The discussion is Chuck Hagel's appointment to a cabinet level position is it not?

    That is not the question I was asked. Nonetheless, here's a couple who were filibustered although Repubs mustered the votes for cloture. Kempthorne (Interior) 2006, Portman (USTR) 2005.

    And now thanks to the GOP...

    Cornyn told The Cable, "There is a 60-vote threshold for every nomination."
