Senator corker you have some positive things to say about senator hagel last month when there is his name was first -- city had good relations. On the Senate Foreign Relations Committee do you see anything out there now. They should disqualify him from the Pentagon post. Well I think -- a lot of people. Hearings -- to have a huge effect on -- no -- top two check this week he's coming in to see me next week. But I think they hearings this is going to be a real hearing process unlike many that people who end up being confirmed or not -- -- -- not a lot of questions about just this whole -- nuclear posture views. Those are things that haven't really been discussed yet. Obviously people have concerns about his stance towards Iran and Israel. But I think another thing George it's gonna come off as just his overall -- per month and is he stated. To -- an apartment or big agency are big entity like the Pentagon and so look -- rational -- -- -- down. What's that you have questions about his -- I think there at that thank.

Some of the positions he's taken that generally speaking about our nuclear posture I think you know that. I've -- farms and the new start treaty a lot of modernization was supposed to take place as a result of that on our nuclear arsenal. That is not happening at the face that issue -- Pentagon's gonna have a big effect on that and for me that is going to be a very big issue.
