    to have John McCain torpedo two consecutive nominations, first Rice then Hagel.  It would have left Obama looking like McCain was leading him around by the nose.  Once word of the potential nomination slipped out several weeks ago and McCain and the Neo-Cons jumped all over him there was no turning back.  Not the best choice imo.
