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.
I do not disagree on wish washy, but when it comes to military they are very much opposed. This is why Hagel did everything but endorse Obama. Hagel came out during election and opposed gramps on Iraq. Also where was Hagel when Katrina happened? With Obama in Russia on a trip over security for nuclear weapons security. Gramps is all about military and him and Hagel are completely opposite here. Hagel prefers diplomacy and gramps not so much.
