“Amid building tension, Obama nominates Hagel as defense secretary”


Updated: 2:01 p.m. ET

After weeks of speculation, President Obama formally tapped former Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., to be defense secretary today, inviting a potential nominating battle from members of both sides of the aisle even as he prepares for several tough legislative fights in the coming months.

He also formally nominated John Brennan, a 25-year CIA veteran and his top counterterrorism adviser, to lead the CIA.  FULL ARTICLE

“After Congress’ narrow dodge of the fiscal cliff, Washington isn’t exactly breathing easy.

Major fiscal fights remain for the coming session and President Barack Obama has signaled his unwillingness to put Americans through another drawn-out battle over the nation’s debt limit, which Congress will vote on this term.

“14th Amendment Option: Nancy Pelosi Urges Obama To ‘Just Go Do It’ “

WASHINGTON — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) urged the president on Sunday to drop his resistance to the idea and simply bypass the upcoming debate over raising the debt ceiling by deeming the entire cap unconstitutional.

Appearing on CBS‘ “Face the Nation,” Pelosi offered her strongest endorsement to-date of the 14th Amendment option, which holds that Congress doesn’t have the power to use the debt ceiling as a hostage-taking device because the validity of the debt “shall not be questioned.”
