    spending approval with the purpose of protecting Clinton Administration from incoming missiles from Republican Congressmen?

    The Hagel nomination is hurting the Republicans' credibility. Although they already had none with most Kossacks, they still had some in some quarters. (See Financial Times article referenced in previous diary: http://www.dailykos.com/...)

    SecDef Hagel is likely to facilitate developing, selling and implementing improved policy towards military spending (in comparison with Democrat Panetta).

    Also SecDef Hagel should be able to dampen the occasional eruption of war fever against Iran.
