If Obama Picks Hagel

It looks like President Obama will appoint former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel to be his next Secretary of Defense and could do so as early as Monday.

If Obama appoints Hagel then he will once again be telling Israel, “F*#k you.”

And why not? For all his antipathy towards Israel, Obama still got more than two thirds of the Jewish vote last year.

It tells us that Obama is comfortable with someone who derisively uses the term “Jewish lobby” and “let the Jews pay for it”.

It also reminds us that Obama views Israel, not Iran as the biggest obstacle to peace in the Middle East. 

Still, I don’t understand why Obama wants to pick a fight with Chuck Schumer. I guess Obama thinks the Senate will confirm their former colleague.

I’m no fan of Barney Frank but I would love to see Deval Patrick appoint him to the Senate if for no other reason than the pleasure of seeing Frank make Hagel sweat during the confirmation hearings.
