Our latest contest photo and headline come to us from the Washington Post’s  Chris Cillizza, who wrote at “The Fix” blog:

But, all of the reporting on the departure suggests that it was not really Hagel’s decision at all. And, judging from the body language and facial expressions on display at the announcement this morning, the reporting is right. Big time.

And to that I say, “Who needs a secretary of Defense anyway when we have such a strong commander in chief — winner of the Nobel Peace Prize?”

Caption-contest fans will find my declaration very comforting because we know a “Peace Through Strength” sign hangs in the Oval Office. (Shhhhh, Obama does not want you to know that he crossed out “Through Strength” with his famous “red line” using a Sharpie.)

For more on why Hagel “resigned” be sure to read  Bridget Johnson’s report here at PJ Media.  Here is my favorite line:

“You’ve always given it to me straight and for that I’ll always be grateful,” said Obama.
