    While I can certainly understand why folks who care more deeply about LGBT issues than any others might find the Hagel nomination disturbing, they should understand that there are others for whom ending the Likudnik veto over American middle-east policy is just as important.  Antigay bigotry is not the only bigotry.  There is anti-Arab bigotry laced through the AIPAC world and it must be faced.

    What potential Democratic nominee for this post would upset AIPAC as much as Hagel?  Sorry, but If Sestak or Clark has been outspoken on these issues, you'll have to show me.

    I'm Jewish and I'm for any appointment that weakens the notion that AIPAC speaks for me.

    sTiVo's rule: Just because YOU "wouldn't put it past 'em" doesn't prove that THEY did it.
