  •  I think I just want to hear from Hagel (0+ / 0-)

    that he's going to be 1000% supportive of the post-DADT military, and Obama's position towards AIPAC.  Breaking the fundie ties to Israel might do more to damage the fundie positions here than you might think.  It would certainly not hurt Middle-east relations to be able to discount the hardliners in both places and talk to all the parties without having explosions of hate just for talking.  

    Not crazy about Hagel, I think there are probably Democrats who could do the job, but who knows what 11-Dimensional chess this is part of.
