Put Hagel up for nomination so that a faction of the GOP will go after one of their own publicly further dividing the party.
Another group within the GOP will support Hagel. All the while the President looks bipartisan. Somewhat brilliant.
There is no risk for the President - they are members of the same RepubliCratic Party behind closed doors. The public gets theatrics as we continue to be sold out.
