Chuck Hagel (R-NE) (C) arrives at his confirmation hearing to become the next secretary of defense before the Senate Armed Services Committee as his wife Lilibet (R) looks on January 31, 2013 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. President Barack Obama nominated Hagel, a controversial choice as Hagel opposed former President George W. Bush and his own party on the Iraq War and upset liberals with his criticism of a gay ambassador, for which he later apologized. (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images)
