Sadly, Hagel will be confirmed with a straight party line vote. McCain, Graham, et al were hoping that at least one democrat would openly oppose Hagel (which would give cover for other dems to do the same), but it appears that won't happen. One would hope that the top military leadership at the pentagon would keep Hagel in line, but they're not any better. They think being openly gay in the military and women in combat are good things.
