    nominated him because he actually thinks he is going to do a good job and they are in synch on most national security issues, together with Biden and Kerry. Obama, like everyone, makes mistakes, but he is definitely not naive, especially after the last 4 years. He obviously knew that Hagel has not been exactly popular in many R circles for quite some time now. Hell, I knew it, and I think I have access to slightly less information than he does. Whatever Obama's reasons for nominating Hagel, playing nice to the Rs was most definitely NOT oneof them.
