How right they were

I ran across an old article (The Washington Times, January 7, 1997) and wanted to share an astute prediction.

Chuck Hagel raised eyebrows in Washington by winning the Republican primary in Nebraska, where he was given little hope. He impressed more skeptics by overcoming odds and winning the general election over Democrat Ben Nelson to take the seat left by retiring Democratic Sen. Jim Exon.

"If he runs his office half as well as he did his campaign, he's going to be a player to watch," Mr. Marr said.

Mr. Hagel has proven himself as one to watch, and we continue to expect to see great things.
