Well, This Should End Hagel-Mania
Obviously a lot of conservatives were getting excited about Chuck Hagel, wondering if this bold new face of the Republican Party had a chance to win the nomination in 2008. And then Robert Scheer endorsed him
.CHUCK HAGEL for president! If it ever narrows down to a choice between him and some Democratic hack who hasn't the guts to fundamentally challenge the president on Iraq, then the conservative Republican from Nebraska will have my vote. Yes, the war is that important, and the fact that Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York, the leading Democratic candidate, still can't -- or won't -- take a clear stand on the occupation is insulting to the vast majority of voters who have.
Of course, Scheer isn't serious; he's just using the Republican to bash the insufficiently liberal (in his estimation) Hillary.
