Please, No More Chuck Hagel Talk

I keep hearing the name Chuck Hagel being mentioned as a possible Obama appointee if he wins the White House. And it's coming from of all people---liberals. I see it in comment sections and in some articles. As if that's some sort of bipartisan statement for Obama that will have the beltway weenies singing kumbaya across DC. I hate to speculate on something like this because I don't want to assume Obama will win the general. We do have to deal with McCain's Media at all times, but really, what is the fascination with him? Do they really believe that if Obama picks Republicans to be in his cabinet that they'll suddenly be won over and give him a very easy time trying to pass his legislation? I mean get real.

And I've also heard that Robert "Iran Contra" Gates is a good idea too. I don't know, do you think they've watched too many episodes of the the great series......West Wing?

(graphic) If the pundits are so into Hagel---maybe if Obama wins---they can ask him to appoint John McCain to be his Secretary of State---you remember---just like Jimmy Smits did to Alan Alda:

"Santos names Vinick as Secretary of State."

How about if Obama just asks Alan Alda instead?
