Chuck Hagel For SecDef

Here's a great piece supporting Chuck Hagel's nomination for Secretary of Defense.

My last post was triggered by the hypocrisy of David Brooks who thinks he should be canonized for his gall at teaching journalism ethics at Harvard.

Well this piece doesn't canonize Mark Shields(no human should ever be considered a saint, in fact no clear thinking human should ever want to be considered a saint),
but I do recommend his clear reasoning for why Chuck Hagel should be confirmed as Secretary of Defense.

Ironically, Mark Shields quotes none other than John McCain on the horror and brutality of war.
Only a fraud or a fool would glorify war.

If and when you read this post, and others, and like them I would be most grateful if you would recommend this blog to your friends.  I'm not into converting right wing people, a fool's errand at best. I am into helping folks of a similar persuasion, progressives/liberals, know that they are not alone. 

Thanks for your support,
