McCain Expects Hagel Confirmation This Week
by News Editor
Politico – Sen. John McCain said Sunday he expects former Sen. Chuck Hagel to be confirmed by the full Senate this week as the next secretary of defense.
“The president deserves an up-or-down-vote,” the Arizona Republican said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Now Democrats will say, ‘We’ve never done that before, well they have, and they did with [John] Bolton and John Tower and others. But that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t give Chuck Hagel an up-or-down vote, and we should.”
