Andrea Mitchell said on NBC this morning that there are "serious problems" with Chuck Hagel, who is rumored to be nominated as secretary of defense:
"What Senator Schumer said was really very, very revealing," said Mitchell, referring to Schumer's decision not to commit to support a Hagel nomination. "If a Democratic senator is not going to come to Chuck Hagel's defense, then I think there is serious problems there."
"He did not come to his defense," NBC host David Gregory said Schumer's remarks on Hagel.
"The problem that Chuck Hagel has is ... he's now getting shot at from the left and the right because of his past comments, which he has now retracted and apologized for against gays," Mitchell explained on NBC.
