The Hayden nomination is interesting on a couple of different levels.
First, assuming that Negroponte and the President firmly believe that the CIA should be a “provider of services” to the broader intelligence community, then a Negroponte deputy should do a good job of keeping the CIA blowhards in career middle management in check.
Second, folks seem to forget that if anyone understands CIA culture its new chief of staff Josh Bolten, whose father was a career CIA employee. No doubt Bolten understands what is happening out in Langley better than most in this White House.
