    Is Mr. Hagel an Eisenhower, Powell republican w/r/t defense?

    Meaning one who has waged war, seen war from the inside out, and believes that there needs to be a strong reason to wage war - again?  As compared to the other end of the spectrum, chicken hawks who avoided the call in the event, who are insatiable for status or money or crusade and/or excitement?  No need to name names.

    Think he is enough like the former to merit swiftboating by the latter?  Is he big enough quarry?

    Surely someone can say he saw him smoke dope in Vietnam.

    In the meantime, to ground the discussion, before the possible swiftboating begins, here are the goods on him, so far...

    A preemptive vile attack on anyone in Congress who might dare question the Dear Leader's selection of Defense Secretary . Anyone who opposes Hagel is a chicken hawk? ...
    Your  partisan "chickenhawk" attack on political opponents is disgusting . Typical liberal personal attacks. "Insatiable" ? What does that mean?
    By your "logic", anyone who didnt serve in the military and didnt vote for John McCain is a "chickenhawk" , also?

    "No need to name names"? How about Bill Clinton, he didnt serve in the military, did he? Gets a pass because he has a "D" next to his name, right?

    Meaning the ones who will self-identify through their demagoguery?  Stand by.

    No.  Rather the type that the victims you identify would rather see in the position.

    Hagel an equal opportunity offender from gays to jews.  I like this guy he speaks his mind; eschews PC sensibilities and he was a foot soldier.

    Well, he is certainly not a Rumsfeld, which is a darn good start! We need a veteran as SecDef.

    POTUS reaches across the aisle (again) to choose the best for the job and the country.

    Looking forward to reversing the Bush spending spree over at defense that's way overdue....

     

    Term One: Save the country, turn the boat around and clean up the mess.

    Term Two: Recovery, real reforms, and end the war.

    To be sure, "preemptive" and "vile" aren't among Gen. Powell's tenets - such as, if you go in, have an American vital interest, have the whole country behind you, and if you break it you own it - in any of his writings, but maybe a general doesn't put his whole armament in writing.

    And don't keep running up the debt that the Friends of Defense will fight to have paid on the backs of the unwashed "entitled".

    Sort of a good thing for us, as the democrats have proven repeatedly that they cannot be trusted to defend this country.

    However, they keep picking the 98 pound weaklings within the repubs, so not all that valuable.
