Washington Post recommends Hagel for Sec. Def.

An editorial in yesterday’s Washington Post argued for Chuck Hagel (or Senators Lieberman or McCain) to replace Donald Rumsfeld as Secretary of Defense.

"Rumsfeld's replacement should be someone who can help restore a bipartisan consensus for a sensible Iraq policy."

A nice idea, as I think that Senator Hagel would make an excellent Secretary of Defense (or State for that matter), but it’s not likely to happen in this administration, plus I’m hoping that he gets the boss’s job in 2008.

Taking the position of SecDef would likely be the death knell for running in 2008; however, just about anyone would be better as SecDef than what we have now (or SecState for that matter). With that said, I certainly don't think Lieberman would be must of an improvement as I tend to think that he is as incompetent as the remainder of the current Administration.
