State Sen. Bob Odell averages a phone call a day from someone curious about his old friend Chuck Hagel. Maybe they saw him on the Sunday morning talk shows, decrying President Bush's latest plan for Iraq, or perhaps they like his ideas about reducing the federal deficit.
Whatever spurs them to call, their question is usually the same: Is Hagel running for president?
Yeah, we wonder about that here too.
Oh, yeah. Did I mention that this blog gets a mention in the article?
