Hagel Nomination Hits a Wall

Chuck Hagel will not have the 60 votes to overcome a filibuster at tomorrow's scheduled cloture vote on his nomination to become Defense secretary, NBC News reports.

Roll Call: "Republicans insist they are not mounting a filibuster but merely demanding a delay in a vote until their demands have been satisfied."

Meanwhile, the Washington Free Beacon digs up a 2007 account of a speech by Hagel in which he claimed that the State Department "has become adjunct to the Israeli Foreign Minister's office."
