What’s up with John McCain? The great Republican moderate has become an angry old man. After leading the way to getting Susan Rice eliminated as a candidate for Secretary of State, he has now jumped all over Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s choice for Secretary of Defense. I was really surprised at how well Hagel took the abuse. I think he took it too well. He doesn’t appear to be a fighter to me.
I really enjoyed Hillary Clinton responses to the questioning of her by the Senate, McCain and Lindsey Graham in particular. She let them know that she wasn’t going to just sit there and take the political abuse. I really would like to see her as the next President. She doesn’t take no stuff.
