Lindsey Graham: Chuck Hagel an "In Your Face" Nomination

Neocons freaking out

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday expressed dismay at reports President Obama would tap former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) for Secretary of Defense, calling it an "in your face" selection.

"I like Chuck Hagel. He served with distinction in Vietnam as an enlisted man—two Purple Hearts. But quite frankly Chuck Hagel is out of the mainstream of thinking on most issues regarding foreign policy," said Graham in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union."
