Do we want a Secretary of Defense who cries in public?

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has doubled down on Chuck Hagel, though I don’t think he’s helping:

Defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel “almost had tears in his eyes” when Sen. Chuck Schumer explained during a private meeting his objection to Mr. Hagel’s use of the term “Jewish lobby,” Mr. Schumer recalled Wednesday.

The only tears Schumer should evoke are tears of laughter the next time he claims to have Israel’s back.
