White House to some members of Congress: Expect Hagel nomination

A Republican and former U.S. Senator from Nebraska is expected to be nominated for secretary of defense, sources tell CNN.

The White House has told some senior members of Congress to expect President Obama to nominate Chuck Hagel as defense secretary, according to a knowledgeable source. Another source with knowledge of the nomination called it "locked down."

The timing is uncertain, but other sources have told CNN it could come early next week.

    I think I'll start reporting on stealing supplies from plush hotels by male gym members who request male-only massueses.
    Think I can sell that story?

      @banasy, no wonder the room rates are so high at 4 and 5 star hotels. What kind of person would stoop so low and steal towels and soaps from a hotel?
