Chuck Hagel Wearing A Joe Biden Mask

A strange photo from 2007 shows presumptive Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel dressed up in a Joe Biden costume.

A Steve Clemons story from 2009 clarifies that Hagel wore this outfit to a Senate Foreign Relations Committee meeting on Halloween 2007 that Biden was chairing. Hagel, who is expected to be nominated for Secretary of Defense early next week, also reportedly once dressed up as Colin Powell to visit him at the State Department.
