Hagel is not that good of a Senator and would be a terrible President. He is a semi Republican who tends to remind you more of Kerry than of Bush or McCaine, although he is closer to the latter which means the media enemies of the Republicans will be rooting for him and giving him favorable coverage like this Post puff piece.
Okay, now that the election is over, are you ready to talk about 2008? Chuck Hagel is.
The Republican senator from Nebraska has been thinking seriously about 2008 since he won reelection in 2002, and mulling a run for the White House even longer. He has a long history of doing, and getting, what he wants. He's ready -- well, ready to talk.
