Something tells me Mr. Hagel is not a very "forgiving" type of guy........................
I was kind of surprised looking at the roll call. Rand Paul, Thad Cochran, and Dick Shelby breaking ranks while Collins, Murkowski, and Kirk don't. I guess it makes sense when you look at their foreign policy positions, but those aren't the first Senators I think of when it comes to crossing over.
The following is why Hagel got the 3rd Degree from many of his form colleagues..
He was known for standing up against the "business as usual bull**** in Washington".
That's basically why he didn't run for office again. He was sick and tired of the dishonesty in Washington.
Honestly, I'm not sure why he wants to be Sect of Defense.
