    President Obama’s first Secretary of Defense was a Republican, Bill Gates, who had served in the same position under President Bush.
    Bob Gates is considered a Republican but he is not a registered Republican.
    KING: There's been some talk of keeping Secretary Gates on for some time. Is that acceptable to you?

    REID: Sure. I think we need a good transition there. I am confident that Senator Obama has somebody in mind for secretary of defense but Gates -- you know, it's interesting, my conversation with Secretary Gates, he's not even a Republican. Why wouldn't we want to keep him? He's never been a registered Republican.
