Woodward: Dem Senators Have Called WH Asking if Hagel Will Withdraw

by Andrew Johnson

Appearing on the Fox News Sunday panel this morning, Bob Woodward said that Democratic senators have had doubts about Chuck Hagel’s nomination for secretary of defense, and wondered if he would bow out. “I think there’s another dimension here, and that is what are Democratic senators really thinking about the Hagel nomination. I understand some of them have actually called the White House and said, ‘Is Hagel going to withdraw? Will he consider withdrawing?’” Woodward said. “I wonder whether the Democrats are kind of looking and asking what really is the fundamental question here: is he the best person to be secretary of defense?”
