Chuck Todd said this morning he believes the Obama administration will "yank" the possible nomination of Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense:
"My guess is that they yank Chuck Hagel at the end of the day," said Todd. "It's become too much of a political football."
Todd admitted, however, that Obama is "enamored" with the idea that Hagel could be the next secretary of defense. No decision on who will replace Leon Panetta has been announced.
