Reader comment on item: The Hagel Nomination: An Open Letter to Sen. Charles E. Schumer

Submitted by john w mcginley (United States), Feb 20, 2013 at 13:04

You have done a good service for the United States and for Israel with your Letter. I suspect it will fall on deaf ears. Schumer, I suggest, loves being in the Obama "in crowd" more than he loves Israel and/or the United States. He wants to be the next Majority Leader of the Senate. Ambition corrupts.

We are already in a dangerous way now that President Obama does not have to face the electorate again. "Flexibility." ((God forbid! Would he actually try to maintain himself in power beyond a second term? Narcissists are dangerous.)) Obama with Hagel as Secretary of Defense would be an awful mix for both our country and for Israel. Still, even if this open letter does not do the trick, it was the right thing at the right time.

Thank you. JWM
