Hagel Filibuster Hinges on McCain

Byron York: "Members of the Senate have left Washington for the President's Day break, scheduled to return February 25. That means Republicans who voted to filibuster the nomination of Chuck Hagel to be Defense Secretary have ten days to search for new evidence against him and lobby colleagues to keep up the opposition."

"With 41 votes needed to uphold a filibuster -- exactly the number Republicans mustered against Hagel on Thursday -- the GOP has no votes to lose. And the most critical of those votes appears to belong to Sen. John McCain."
