    That could be, he is a proven quiter.

    Yep! Those slam-dunk Senate seats sure make for a boring election season, don't they?

    Senator McCain is a conventional Republican, what he isn't is a radical right republican. However that doesn't mean he doesn't have pull in the party, nor that he was speaking only for himself.

    Payback is a bitch and the republicans are nothing if not very capable of carrying a grudge. The ONLY hope Republicans have is total unity in NO. Their position is very shakey and without total loyalty they will lose the major economic battles coming up.

    But keep believing what you wish, it was real helpful in the last election cycle....

    Hagel dared to speak out against Bush, the war for oil, and the surge. He's persona no grata for most Republicans. Also, most Republican Senators are scared to death of being ousted in their primaries, what with tea nuts purging anyone even remotely appearing RINO.

    Hagel over the years has spoken what is on his mind, often to his own detriment. Does BHO think that he will suddenly change his personality and now begin to cow-tow because BHO is CiC? Possible, I suppose, but not too likely, IMO. BHO doesn't get along too well with those who are not "yes men," so there will be friction.

    Good evening, Jack.

    You're the who said the GOP's action was shameful. I thought you might have a reason for that.
