Obama Expected to Pick Hagel for Defense Next Week

President Obama is expected to name former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) as his choice for defense secretary as early as Monday, The Cable reports, "as critics of the former Nebraska senator prepare to go to war to fight his expected nomination."

Meanwhile, Hagel's detractors "are moving forward with their campaign against the nomination."

NBC News confirms Hagel is likely to be the pick though White House officials deny a final decision has been made.
