ABC's Jonathan Karl reported this morning that there is not enough Democratic support in the Senate right now to confirm Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense:

"I talked this morning to top Democratic staffer in the Senate who said this is not a guarantee that he will get confirmed, that there are enough Democrats that are concerned about hagel to put him well short of 50, until he makes the case," said Karl.
