Senate votes to confirm Hagel as defense chief

Just four Republicans joined Democrats in confirming Hagel, a two-term Republican senator and a twice-wounded Vietnam veteran.
The vote came after the GOP ended an unprecedented filibuster. President Obama called Hagel the defense secretary the nation needs and the leader our troops deserve.
