Why I would not support Senator Chuck Hagel for president

Read this interview he did with GQ (GQ!?) to find out why. It could have just as easily been Harry Reid or Ted Kennedy making those statements.

    Please let Hagel joins Chafee and DeWine in the unemployment line!

    In the past Charlie has been rumored to be considering an independent run for President in 2008. Which is a good reason for GOP and independent voters in Nebraska to give him a pink slip ASAP. A split elctorate in 2008 would hand the election to Hilly the Hun and the Obama the Empty Suit.

    Charlie is up for re-election in 2008, and perhaps a primary challenger will be able to wrench him out of the public trough. At the very least, a tough primary might wreck his presidential ambitions – and spare the country a RINO edition of Kerry.

    No need to read the interview Sis. I’ve heard enough from this putz. I hope he runs as an indie. It’ll be fun to watch him spin his wheels. In the meantime, I hope his state is fielding replacements as we speak.

    Kerry has bowed out of runing for president in ’08.

    WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, the Democrats’ losing presidential candidate in 2004, does not intend to run again in 2008, a Democratic official said Wednesday.

    This official said Kerry intends to seek a new six-year term in the Senate.

    Kerry plans to disclose his political plans in remarks on the Senate floor later in the day, according to this official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid pre-empting a formal announcement.

    Kerry, 64, who lost the White House when Ohio voted for President Bush by 118,601 votes on election night in November 2004, was attending a Senate Foreign Relations Committee meeting and unavailable for comment.

    His decision leaves a field of nine Democrats running or signaling their intention to do so, including Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record) of Illinois, and Kerry’s 2004 running mate John Edwards.
