WSJ: Is Carl Levin Running the Defense Department?

There's a rumor going around Robert Gates is the Defense Secretary. Based on recent evidence the man running the Pentagon is Democratic Senator Carl Levin.

Gates earlier sent the names of General Pace and Admiral Giambastiani to the White House as his choices for our top two non-civilian military posts. Bush agreed.

Friday, Gates declared he had decided not to renominate the two men to avoid a "quite contentious" debate on Capitol Hill over Iraq.
