Hagel big in the blogosphere in January

Senator Hagel has been a hot topic on blogs recently. He shot up in terms of coverage and that's a great thing for our grassroots efforts. Here are a couple of indicators of that.

The Next Prez looked at the number of blogs mentioning the candidates and rank ordered them. What I find even more impressive is that Chuck Hagel topped most of the candidates that announced they were running this month.
