Cornyn: Hagel is "profoundly wrong"

In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) explains why he is opposed to former Sen. Chuck Hagel becoming Secretary of Defense.

Cornyn says Hagel is "profoundly wrong on some of the biggest national security threats confronting the United States today, namely a nuclear Iran."

"This is a wrong job for him," Explained Cornyn, "because he's certainly outside of the national security mainstream."

What do you think about President Obama's decision to nominate Hagel as Secretary of Defense?

Watch the full interview at 5pm ET Monday on CNN.
