A McCain clone? They hate each other! Hagel blasted gramps in 2007 for being pro war. Hagel insinuated without comming right out and endorsing he was pro Obama. Hagel and Obama were friends in the senate and worked on nuclear weapons security. Hagel is definitely a RHINO but nothing like Gramps. This will shut gramps out of military no matter what committee he is on. This appointment is a big FU to John.
He may not be on John McCrazy's Christmas card list, but he's definitely an ideological clone. If anything, he's more wishy-washy than McBraindead.
