Durbin Gushes Over Hagel For Def Sec

“Chuck Hagel was a Republican Senator from Nebraska, a decorated veteran of the Vietnam war, a person who has a resume that includes service on the foreign relations committee as well as the intelligence committee,” said Durbin on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Yes, he is a serious candidate if the president chooses to name him.”

"It tells me that he not only won the election but he wants to lead this country. You know, sitting back here and avoiding any confrontation and any controversy is going to make a weakened presidency. He needs to lead for the good of this nation, and we need to work together and find compromise and consensus in both political parties."
