Chuck Hagel: Barack Best to Unite Country

Hagel: Barack Best to Unite Country
Posted March 29, 2008 | 02:53 AM (EST)

Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) said last night that, among the 3 remaining candidates, he thought Barack Obama had the best chance of bringing the country together. While he did not dismiss McCain (he's done that in the Senate) or Clinton (she's had some success in the Senate, not as much as McCain), he said that he believed that Barack Obama, for generational reasons, could best bring the country together.

Hagel also stated that he believes the inventory of problems the next President will face is unprecedented and that that is why it is so important that the country be brought together so that it could really solve problems. Although Hagel did not endorse Obama, he did not rule out the possibility.

Hagel, who is retiring from the Senate and, for awhile, from public life, pointed to data showing 81% of the country believe we are on the "wrong-track", that registration numbers show Republicans to be in the teens and Independents higher than Democrats, and that trust in Congress and the President is at all time lows.

"In a democracy", said Hagel, "people push something else out there" to take the place or transform institutions. He believes that that is what this election will ultimately be about.

Wait, Denise is in love with Hagel. The cognitive dissonance may cause her head to explode!

In announcing his retirement, Mr. Hagel will fulfill a promise he made to voters when he first ran for the Senate in 1996 that he would serve only two terms.

From what I understand a number of Pubs in congress are retiring because there's a perfect storm coming and they don't want to be in it when it hits.

Even Ron Paul says most of the people do not like the direction this country is moving in.

But I don't ever believe one man will unite a whole country. Too many different people.

Well, he's entitled to his opinion no matter how wrong this one is. I tend to think if Hillary were in Baaarack's position he'd be saying it was her. Just like amy number of Baaarack's supporters would be.

Well, he's certainly independent.

It cracks me up to see folks that criticized and denigrated Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman for their "independence" applaud Hegel for his.

Hypocrisy like that shouldn't surprise me I guess, though. Heh.
