As the Senate-confirmed defense chief, Shanahan will be able to
set policy and give direction with the assurance that it will not be quickly
superseded by another. Marshall, who was secretary of defense from 1950 to 1951, almost none have come into the job with an extensive military background. Having an experienced, Senate-confirmed secretary of defense is critically important, so it’s welcome news that Shanahan has been nominated for the position.
