What do you think?

Many people have been talking about possible roles for Chuck Hagel in the next administration. Some ideas include Chuck Hagel as either Secretary of State or Secretary of Defense in a McCain or in an Obama administration. The idea of an Obama/Hagel ticket has been widely discussed as well.

What are your thoughts on these suggestions?

UPDATE: There have been a number of news stories out there about a possible Obama/Hagel pairing, and this one from the AP ("Hagel says he'd consider VP offer from Obama") focuses on Senator Hagel's reaction to the possibility.
