Chuck Hagel has really become a curious and frustrating figure on the American political scene. This speech he gave last week at Brookings on "U.S. Foreign Policy in the Middle East" is one of the very best I've heard from any American elected officials -- free of the sort of defensiveness and weasel words that characterize things the Democrats say.The discussion continues in the coments on the post. One reader remarked in the context of the 2008 election:
Hagel has character, the courage of his conviction and real clear reasoning.
Watch out McCain and watch out Hiliary.
