Four Republicans joined the Democrats in voting for Hagel: Sens. Mike Johanns (NE), Thad Cochran (MS), Richard Shelby (AL), and in a surprise move, Rand Paul (KY)

Yeah...we want our secretary of defense referencing the Israeli gov as practicing apartheid.

At least we know why Obama had a hard-on for Hagel.
