Hagel in line for cabinet position with Obama administration?

An Omaha World Herald story says Reuters is reporting former Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel met yesterday with President Obama at the White House to discuss joining his national security team and that Obama intended to announce his nominees for secretary of state and defense secretary by year's end. The president also has an opening for the next head of the CIA.

Hagel, a professor of government at Georgetown University, declined to comment on the report. The maverick Republican who opposed the Iraq war during President Bush's administration and supported Democrat Bob Kerrey for Nebraska's open U.S. Senate position this fall, also serves as co-chairman of the President's Intelligence Advisory Board.
