If Hagel 'bites the dust,' some are asking if this woman was actually Obama's intended choice?

Michele Flournoy
Undersecretary of Defense for Policy

     Remember when George W. Bush sent Harriet Miers onto the field to run interference as a decoy for his first-choice nominee and subsequently confirmed preference, Samuel Alito to the United States Supreme Court?

     This entire 'dog and pony show' currently being staged by Barack Obama, creating the illusion he is firmly committed to Former Senator Chuck Hagel as his next Secretary of Defense, is nothing more than a prelude to announcing his primary choice for the job, once Hagel has been beaten to a pulp by Congress and the media.

     In a December 20, 2012 article published in the International Business Times, writer Maya Shwayder asks, "Well, if not Hagel, then who?"*

     Shwayder outlines her theory; "Critics of Hagel, including the Washington Post, have been pushing Michèle Flournoy, a former undersecretary of defense for the first three years of Obama's first term. The Post called her "a seasoned policymaker." 

     Even before Hagel's name came forward, Flournoy was predicted to become the first female secretary. Some have said the departure of Hillary Clinton as secretary of state and her likely replacement by a man, Sen. John Kerry, calls for balancing with another high-profile woman in the Cabinet."

Following four years of  Obama playing shell games, we Americans will diligently keep our eyes on
