Hayden is a very political guy. He knows that his skills are going to the highest bigger. You note the arrogance involved in the fact tat he's
still on active duty during this nomination process. This oversight is supposed to be a harmless mistake, but it telegraphs much more. It implies
that the political establishment really doesn't care what the cattle are thinking.
It's this very kind of thing that drove me in to being an author. Speaking up has come with its own price tag, but I'm glad I've done it.
I do think Hayden's nomination will sail through. In spite of what they say, Democrats won't want to waste their limited political capital on this
guy. they're going to keep their powder dry 'til after the November elections. For now, that means the GOP has a free hand to shuffle the
cureaucracy like a deck of marked cards. Deal 'em any way you want 'em.
