Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel

THE REPUBLICANS did their worst, but Vietnam war hero Chuck Hagel was confirmed today as President Obama’s Secretary of Defense.

A simple majority won the day, 58-41. So, it’s finally over.

The biggest loser is Jennifer Rubin, who disgraced herself and the Washington Post with her diatribes and rantings.

Senator Ted Cruz was revealed for the petty McCarthyite swiftboater that hasn’t been allowed in the Senate since 1954.

It’s a big day when the Pentagon and U.S. military get a bonafide Vietnam generation boss. Secretary Hagel will start tomorrow.
