Hi all! I heard an hour long interview with Hagel from 2005 and agreed with everything that he said. He volunteered and served in Viet Nam, and was severely wounded twice. When he came back, he like John Kerry, had problems about our government misleading the American people about that war. Because of that experience he opposed W's decision to go into Iraq. In the interview he also said that politicians should always put the good of the country over the good of the individual's party.

I think that Obama's choices of Hagel and Kerry were excellent. Both of them served in Viet Nam and both realize that you should only go to war because you have to, not because you want to. I don't think that either of them will be soft regarding threats against this country, but both have insight. Also, I don't consider Iran to be a nuclear threat to us. I think that we should be more concerned with the rogue terrorist groups out there.

This was a long one for me, and you're probably not used to it!
