Joe Supports Hayden at CIA

George Bush's Favorite Democrat strikes again, in support of Mr. 31%'s hobbled and horrible nominee for CIA Director:

“On the inner workings of what we should do to reorganize America’s intelligence system, I found him to be very independent, willing to criticize people in the military intelligence apparatus and generally a straight talker,” Lieberman said of Bush’s appointee. “So, my mind is open to slightly favorably inclined to Mike Hayden as we begin this review of his nomination.”

Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA), House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) and other Republicans have already voiced strong concerns about Hayden, who has strongly defended warrantless wiretapping, has been linked to the Cunningham corrpution scandal, and may have already OKed the shift of all CIA covert ops to the Pentagon.

There are serious questions about this nominee that have nothing to do with politics. Why is Joe "inclined" to support such a questionable candidate?
