    a Democrat exists who's qualified and at least as good on those positions? Both Clark and Sestak, who've been suggested upthread, seem eminently qualified. You're arguing that a Republican who sounds somewhat like a Democrat on a couple of issues would be a better choice than a Democrat, who would sound like a Democrat on a whole range of issues.

    Just to show you the flaw in this line of reasoning, can you imagine a Republican president - even a relatively sane one, say, Poppy Bush - appointing any Democrat to this position, or any other significant cabinet slot?

      I know Wes Clark is often on TV. But I am not sure he would be a good secretary of defense.
      Anyways the point with Hagel is that Obama worked with him and Obama trusts him. That relationship is why Obama is interested in him. He doesn't have that relationship with Clark or Sestak.

      Obama 2012...going to win it with our support!!!
