Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Chuck Hagel For Secretary Of Defense
WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 31: Former U.S. Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) (R) arrives at his confirmation hearing to become the next secretary of defense before the Senate Armed Services Committee as former Sen. Sam Nunn (D-GA) (L) looks on January 31, 2013 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. President Barack Obama nominated Hagel, a controversial choice as Hagel opposed former President George W. Bush and his own party on the Iraq War and upset liberals with his criticism of a gay ambassador, for which he later apologized. (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images)
