by Nathaniel Botwinick

On Meet the Press this morning, General Dempsey, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, refused to say that he was confident in Chuck Hagel’s ability to be Secretary of Defense.

Chuck Todd: Are you confident Chuck Hagel can do the job?

General Dempsey: I’m not going to speak about confidence; he could be my boss. When’s the last time you saw a subordinate discuss their confidence in their potential boss?
