You pegged it!

One aspect I do utterly enjoy about Rand is his independence. Keep in mind he's no more swayed by any Republican group-think than he is swayed by personal opinions from Raimondo, Greenwald, or McConnell. Future retrospect will no doubt find him remarkably, coincidentally, and equally aligned [or not] with Raimondo, Greenwald, McConnell, and the general Republican group-think. One way in which he is exactly like his father [and Ralph Nader] is that he is exquisite in ultimately expressing his irreverence regarding what others think of him personally.

Hagel is no dove. He'll likely want to move troops from Afghanistan to Africa. He reminds me of Colin Powell. We eventually saw Powell's true colors.
