The Inevitability of Chuck Hagel
Newsweek has surveyed the contenders
for the Republican field and determined the likely nominee, and determined that Chuck Hagel has the right stuff:Meanwhile, the three leading contenders for the Republican nomination, John McCain, Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani, are all vulnerable on the war—all three are in the minority of Americans who support the president's plan. Hagel may be the one Republican who can fully separate the party from the troubled legacy of George W. Bush as the GOP looks to 2008.
You know how it goes; Newsweek is only writing this story now because it will be a full year before we discover how poorly Hagel is going to do in the primaries.
