Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is taking a “wait and see” approach to Hagel’s nomination, although on Sunday he cryptically warned that Hagel’s views on Israel, Iran, and “all the other positions that he’s taken over the years will be very much a matter of discussion in the confirmation process.”

Had that discussion happened in 2007, however, it would’ve been quite positive. Then, McConnell gushed “Chuck Hagel is one of the few genuine foreign policy experts in the Senate and an independent, serious voice on many of the most challenging issues we face,” adding that Hagel is “one of the premier foreign policy voices… in the United States Senate.”
