WHO WOULD EXPECT A SENATOR TO BE A GOOD EXECUTIVE?

Chuck Hagel was a huge mistake  (Ryu Spaeth, 11/24/14, The Week)

That one sentence from an anonymous White House official is the final verdict on Chuck Hagel, who by all appearances is being shoved out of his post as secretary of Defense. It was perhaps his sad destiny all along to leave the administration in the most humiliating way possible, since he joined it in similar fashion, winning confirmation only after he was bludgeoned to near-death by his former Republican colleagues in the Senate.

It's no coincidence that W's ex-governor/chief-of-staff filled cabinet was the best since Washington's and fortuitously well-prepared to handle 9-11 when it came.  Nor that the UR's cabinet, which is intentionally devoid of anyone who might show up how unqualified he is to be president, is one of the most forgettable of all time.
