Hagel as Der-Sec would not be setting the policies at all, the President does that and it's the job of the full Congress to Block-Stop either of them if they were to do something that they, you, I, the people disagree with. The Def-Sec has some power in advising the President, advice, discussions, the Def Sec does not decide the resulting final decisions on policies to be implimented, the President does. If the Def Sec does something on his own and the President approves of it but the Congress doesn't, they have ways to Stop-Block it !
