    I promise not to report your double felony of hiring an illegal and pimping him/her out - I hope, at a minimum, you'll try to earn a profit, not like most progressive business ventures.

    Not everything in the world is about your precious Obama.

    John Kerry was appointed by Obama as well, and he is certainly way to the left of Hagel, on every issue - and was swiftly confirmed, 94-3.

    Hagel made plenty of enemies in his own party, by going against the grain on numerous occasions, often in a manner many considered seriously inappropriate. Endorsing Democrats for Senate in 2010 and 2012 did nothing to re-endear him to former colleagues either.

    Over/under on Hagel's tenure is one year.

    I take the over - Obama is so stubborn and loves to compound his mistakes.

    Sure. I have nothing in particular against Hagel. Just saying that this is an internal Republican feud, more than anything else.

    May not be BHO's call. I think Hagel will ask to leave.
