It looks like we're inching closer to filling out President Barack Obama's new cabinet.
Homeland Security Adviser John Brennan will be nominated by Obama to be the next director of the CIA, according to a senior administration official.
The announcement is expected Monday afternoon at the same time the president nominates former Sen. Chuck Hagel to be the next secretary of defense.
Ticker: Hagel in for a fight, GOP says
Hagel's views shaped by Vietnam
Who is Chuck Hagel?
Obama's Cabinet: Who's in, who's out?
GOP prostrating itself before our Lordships in Tel Aviv, AIPAC and other of their kind have declared a fight against Chuck Hagel.
As for Brennan his performance & policies under Bush have to be scrutinized.
I have some concerns about Brennan myself @ saywhat. As for Hagle, i think hes an excellent choice.
On Hagel,let us hope Pr.Obama doesn't buckle under pressure from you know where. That would indeed be a sad day.
Hagel was loudly against the SURGE that won the war in Iraq and swore it would fail. Even after it was successful, he was still vocal against it.
And the point? Alot of people are against war.
mmmm...one hastah wonder if obama was thinking about his maternal grandfather when he selected this man...
