For John, BLUF: Decent pay, car and driver, chance to fly around the nation and to different countries. Nothing to see here; just move along.
As we know, the US Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has resigned (was pushed).♠
From the Instapundit:
WHO WANTS TO BE THE LAST CAREER TO DIE FOR A MISTAKEN PRESIDENCY? Hagel successor, with limited room to maneuver, will face quandary in Iraq, Syria. “The next defense secretary will also have to contend with a sometimes-tense relationship with the White House. Both of Hagel’s predecessors, Leon Panetta and Robert Gates, have criticized Obama’s handling of national security matters since leaving office and have complained of White House micromanagement of the military.”The link inside the Block Quote is from The Washington Post.
I would think that if you want the job of America's Secretary of Defense, it could be yours.
Hat tip to the Instapundit.

♠ Some think that SecDef Hagel was happy to go.
