Secretary of Defense

I must admit I am totally puzzled by Obama's choice of Hegel to be the next Secretary of Defense.  The right is already in an uproar, as we would expect them to be, given that the Hegelian dialectic forms one of the major underpinnings of Communism.  Marx and Engels called Communism "dialectical materialism" in a tribute to Hegel's influence on them.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

And really, the guy was born in 1770.  Isn't he a little old for the job?
