Quote of the Day

"Let me be clear - Senator Hagel's nomination is not about party or politics - it's about the safety and security of our country.  His confirmation would send the wrong message to our allies and our enemies in the Middle East.

"The primary responsibility of the federal government is to keep our people safe, and putting forth a defense secretary nominee with the weak credentials of Chuck Hagel does not meet that obligation.  Senator Hagel's past positions on Iran, Iraq and Israel are troubling enough to warrant that his nomination be withdrawn. But when you couple his past record with his refusal to offer documentation on financial benefits he's received and questionable foreign affairs speeches he's given, it is obvious that he cannot serve in this position effectively."
