(CBS) - It appears President Obama is set to nominate former Nebraska senator Chuck Hagel to be the next Defense Secretary.

But Hagel's potential nomination is already facing criticism from some in Congress. Senator Lindsey Graham called Hagel an "in-your-face" pick from President Obama. Hagel had some controversial positions on Iran and Israel during his days in the Senate.
