  •  His view on sanctions is quite immaterial (0+ / 0-)

    Sanctions are US law and he'll be required to enforce them although the US military doesn't normally play a large role in sanctions enforcement anyway - in Iran's case it's the Treasury department which is primarily responsible for that. DADT repeal is law and he'll be required to enforce that too. A cabinet secretary does not get to pick and chose which laws he or she wants to enforce.  Obama knows that - he's not going to nominate someone he'll have to fire 3 months after he's confirmed.
