Ya gotta wonder what Obama is up to with that Hagel nomination.

My heart wants to believe that it was made in good faith. My head keeps telling me it's a political chess master's move. In any event, I have no faith in the current Congress that Hagel would be confirmed by that bunch. President Obama should know that, too. So, what's up with that move? What is the real goal?
