raimondo agrees with you that hagel is no libertarian and says no one is saying he is.

the GOP (neocons) don't want him because he isn't war hungry enough, although they would not admit that. and as ron paul has pointed out it's more about the policy than the individual in these cases. there's also a lot more to the article than the one bit you have selected.

anyhow, ron paul says (if he was in the senate) he would probably vote for hagel.
