Senators Warming to Panetta as CIA Director

“It’s not a deal-breaker,” Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said. “I think it will be criticized by some, [but] there are things about the CIA that could be approved.”

With confirmation hearings for Obama’s Cabinet nominees set to begin later this week, Panetta will likely be called to the Senate Intelligence Committee in short order. A hearing date has not been set, however, and calls to the committee were not returned.
