Well from what I read;

Hagel a (Republican) does have some issues that might be worth looking into?

McCain wanted yes and no answers to very complexed human issues , that hearing was NOT a 20 second history pop quiz -> to me McCain was way way out of line.

As for the other republicans who grilled Hagel felt that he displayed his history of decisions was poor , they said that Hagel thinking was not (mainstream) <-- wtf is that ? ? is that another word for far right conservatism ?
