Senate panel votes 14/11 to send Hagel nomination to the full Senate for Vote

Despite Chuck Hagels dismal Senate confirmation hearing and controversial stances on policy, the Senate Armed Services Committee voted 14-11 to send his nomination to the full Senate for a vote. We expected Hagel to withdraw from consideration following the delay in his vote.  We still see the potential for Hagel to be blocked by the full senate

chuckhagelA Senate panel narrowly endorsed Chuck Hagel to lead the Pentagon Tuesday, in a rare party-line vote that underscored intense Republican opposition to his nomination while nevertheless advancing Hagel to the floor for a final verdict.

The Senate Armed Services Committee voted 14-11 to advance Hagel’s nomination.

All Republicans present voted against Hagel, himself a Republican and former Nebraska senator. Supporters lauded his service in the Vietnam War, and claimed the nominee had been forthcoming throughout his confirmation process.
