    What if Hagel is Obama's top choice and he feels there isn't a second choice nearly as good?

    With Rice, he felt Kerry (if he was second choice...we never officially knew Rice was his first choice to begin with) was also a great choice. Kerry has been very supportive of Obama (he was his debate partner for Romney and also was the one that hand picked Senator elect Obama to speak at his 2004 convention...basically propelling him toward the Presidency).  Kerry is older it was kind of his last chance..>Rice is a generation younger. So for all we know Kerry was his first choice or he was undecided between the two.

    I try to remember that there always is a lot of stuff we don't know, explanaitons we don't know...before I have a reaction.
