Re "Hagel gets worked over at Senate hearing" (Page A10, Feb. 1): I voted for Sen. John McCain for president in 2008, I am sorry to say, now that I observe him act as an angry old man. He has lost what it means to be reasonable and representative of our country. He should retire before he makes more of a fool of himself, and he should take his water boy Sen. Lindsey Graham with him. His proclaimed patriotic persona doesn't make it any more.
