Dem Congressman "Concerned" About Possible Hagel Nomination
REP. ELIOT ENGEL (D-NY): Well, I think that remark is troublesome -- it's problematic. I shows, at the very best a lack of sensitivity. At the very worst, perhaps, a prejudice. And I'm concerned about it. I'm concerned about the nomination. Obviously, Chuck Hagel has been a senator for many years and has a lot of good attributes, but there's a lot of controversy, not only with that remark, but with some of his votes. It's troublesome. I know I've been hearing a lot from some of my constituents, mainly in opposition to his nomination.
