You gotta problem with Hagel or Brennan?

The way to deal with the dysfunction of Washington (and the US at large) is to NOT attend the dysfunctional behavior.  As for President Obama's nomination of Hagel and Brennan--they are both qualified, and they are the President's choice.  There are no disqualifying objections as to either nominee (unlike Susan Rice whose own recent and past actions clearly brought about legitimate questions of her judgment, fitness, priorities, etc.). Memo to Republicans and Democrats: there are no perfect people; get over it; you weren't elected President.

If Obama will ride this out, he will end up with his choices, for Secretary of Defense and CIA director, being confirmed--and both gentlemen will do a fine job.

The US has a lot of serious problems that the Senate should be spending time on. Obama's nominees for Secretary of Defense and CIA director should be confirmed without delay.
