Bob Kerrey discusses Hagel nomination on 'Real Time With Bill Maher'

Former Nebraska Sens. Chuck Hagel, left, and Bob Kerrey met up after Hagel, a Republican, endorsed Kerrey, a Democrat, for Nebraska’s U.S. Senate seat last November. Kerrey, who lost that bid, supports Hagel as the next defense secretary and made some predictions about Hagel's nomination on "Real Time With Bill Maher" on Friday night.

Former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey predicted Friday night that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., would ultimately support former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel for defense secretary.

“I think it’s unlikely John votes against Hagel,” Kerrey said on the HBO show "Real Time With Bill Maher."
