Senators Overboard! by Gail Collins

“We seem to be short one secretary of defense.”  Leon Panetta has had his farewell ceremony, but will stay on until a new secretary of defense is confirmed by the U.S. Senate.  Chuck Hagel has been nominated buy not yet confirmed by the Senate.  

“Both (Senators) McCain and Graham have changed their tune repeatedly over what the critical, central problem is about making Chuck Hagel the secretary of defense.  The goal posts have not just been moved; they have been put on a tractor-trailer and driven down every highway exit in the continental United States.”
