#1 I still hold that this may be the only opportunity for a long time for a US POTUS Admin or US Govt. to have African-Americans or other Minorities in top-tier positions, espec as per the Executive Branch.

Iff Hagel doesn't make it, the Bammer can still pick from qualified African-Americans or other non-White Minority - "MIXED" MINORITY ADMIN???

Lest we fergit, US CENSUS = WHITE AMERICANS ARE NOT BE THE MAJORITY ANY LONGER IN AMERICA BY CIRCA 2043.

Condi or Tess Rice, Colin Powell, ....FNG???

And there's 2017.

'Tis 30 yarns from 2013, 26 yarns-n-less iff he acts now.

#2 I called this one wrongly. Poor Chuck is a witless dullard of the Maxine Waters genre.

#3 He's still a Donk, which means he'll get confirmed by the Senate. For them, it's about power, the rest is just show and dressing for the game. Oh, and something to bludgeon their enemies opponents with - one set of rules for me, another set of rules for thee.

#4 He's still a Donk
Technically, he's actually a Trunk.

#5 I stand corrected - He's a member of the Beltway Party.

#6 Wonder how much the White House will have to shell out to get Hagel voted down?

#7 Then again, maybe a 'Defense version' of Joe Biden is exactly what the President (and his claque) wants.
