Chuck Hagel is President Obama’s choice for Secretary of Defense and I think that he is an excellent choice. Some GOP members of the Senate disagree. What John McCain and some others are forgetting is that the cabinet position is Secretary of Defense, not head of the War Department. The War Department became the Department of Defense in 1949. It is possible, and I argue desirable, to defense the nation in international disputes without using force in each and every case.
