Say, maybe Hagel really is Obama’s political “soul mate”

I think Peter Wehner misses the connection in his blog post at Commentary this morning:
Perhaps the most alarming thing of all is that according to Bob Woodward of the Washington Post, Obama found in Hagel a “soul mate.” Woodward went on to say that the president and Hagel should “mind meld” on defense matters.
That the president would find himself so passionately attached to a man of such staggering incompetence is troubling in any case; but for Mr. Obama to want such a man to run the Pentagon is, to me, a genuinely alarming prospect.
I for one think that Hagel’s demonstrable incompetence makes the “soul mate” case stronger rather than weaker.
