The 60th, or Maybe the 70th, Vote to Confirm the Idiot Hagel

Richard Shelby announced he'd vote for cloture (which is really the vote to confirm Hagel), on the theory that Hagel is the best we can do.

Which isn't true. In his public utterances he's made it plain he's to the left of Obama (again, as a matter of public statements).

With 60 in, many Republicans will vote for cloture so that the media will say nice things about them, which they won't.
