Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) plans to vote against Chuck Hagel for the Pentagon's top job but he said Sunday that the former Republican senator will probably be confirmed.
"We will have a vote when we get back," McCain said on NBC's "Meet The Press." "And I'm confident that Senator Hagel will probably have the votes necessary to be confirmed as secretary of defense."
Asked if he plans to vote to confirm his old friend, McCain said, "No. I don't believe he is qualified. But I don't believe we should hold up his nomination any further."
