Chuck Hagel

Chuck Hagel  once said that he was a Senator from Nebraska not from Israel.  Even that mild (and unquestionably true statement) was criticized as being not sufficiently pro-Israel.

 Some believe that if he becomes Secretary of Defense, then
1.  he will not be as supportive of Israel as some would like,
2.  he will not be as opposed to the Arabs as some would like,
3.  he will not be as vehement in his opposition to Iran as some would like, and
4.  in facing the perils of the world that he will not always be as intransigent as some would like
     in defending the view that America is always right.

I hope that they are right.

It seems to me that he fits pretty well the foreign policy that I would like to see us follow.
