Sen. John McCain said Sunday that Chuck Hagel isn’t qualified to be secretary of defense. At the same time, McCain predicted that the former Nebraska senator will receive a Senate vote, barring any further disclosures about his past statements.
“I do not believe that Chuck Hagel, who is a friend of mine, is qualified to be secretary of defense,” McCain, R-Ariz., said on CNN’s “State of the Union” program.
