Wrote both my senators about Chuck Hagel’s nomination to be SecDef:
Please reject Sen Hagel’s nomination for Secretary of Defense. The Advice and Consent clause of the Constitution is to ensure that the senior managers of the federal government serve the People of the United States. Obama is not a king. He does not get to surround himself with a royal court loyal only to him. Hagel’s nomination is Obama’s insult to the military. His nomination [appointment*] would just be salt in their wounds.
* crap. I have to write my notes to my senators here first so I can proofread them.
