Funny. At the senate comfirmation hearings today, Hagel did an absolutely horrible job of trying to convince anyone he's right for the job of Defense Secretary. More than horrible, he looked and sounded not just incompetent, but not very smart.
So most news reports headline today's hearings with the word "harsh" as in Hagel took lots of "harsh" questioning from the GOP senators. Down in the small print you notice the stories mention...quietly...that he did badly.
But amazingly as bad as this was, every expert is still of the believe that he will be confirmed. How can this be? He was bad. Unsure, stumbling, backtracking on his own record and still he'll be confirmed? This is as good a candidate as Obama had or does he just not care? Or is it another of those...
"What difference does it make?"...sort of things
