Yes, it was expected, but it's still a good choice in my opinion.
The worst thing the Repubs could do at this point is to give him a hassle at the confirmation hearings, but even I don't think they're that dumb. (But then watching Fox constantly whine that Clinton is somehow faking her illness ("The Immaculate Concussion" as they put it) nothing would surprise me at this point.
When even Repubs oppose a fellow Repub--Chuck Hagel for Sec Defense, a veteran staunch conservative by anyone's yardstick--you know things are seriously out of whack. I'd remind you Obama kept on Bush's Sec Defense Gates, and even appointed conservative hero Petreaus (Well, that didn't work out well).
You get the feeling Obama could appoint Jeb Bush to a "Commission on Something" and the wingnuts would find a reason to be against it....i.e., the "Obama" part....
