Hagel pretends the problem is "one vote" or "one statement"

Former Sen Chuck Hagel (R-NE) is testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee, hoping to be confirmed as the next Secretary of Defense. He has attempted to address his critics, insisting that he should not be judged by “one vote” or “one statement.” But of course, that is question-begging–it’s not one vote that causes concern. It’s a pattern of votes against sanctions on Iran and a pattern of anti-Israel statements, among other issues. As questioning begins, that’s where the members of the committee ought to seek answers.

Overall, his opening statement was very weak–a far cry from what was promised by former Sen. John Warner, who introduced him and promised that Hagel’s statement would address every single outstanding question.
