    Good for Chuck Hagel.

    "Senator Chuck Hagel declined to endorse his party's likely presidential nominee, John McCain, and said he would consider serving as secretary of defense in a Barack Obama administration.

    Hagel, who last year considered a White House run as an independent, said he would remain a registered Republican: ``I don't know forever, but right now I'm not considering changing my registration.''

    'I don't have any plans to endorse any candidate,'' Hagel, 61, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television's "Political Capital with Al Hunt,'' [broadcast yesterday]."

    1. There is no ideological test to be a member of either of the major parties.

    2. Senator Hagel has an American Conservative Union lifetime rating of 85% which is higher than Senator McCain's 82%. Not exactly someone who anyone can successfully describe as a RINO. - www.acuratings.org/2007all.htm#NE

    ==I can't join you in saying good for Hagel. He is only moving from one corrupt party to the other.

    How much money has he taken through the years from the Rep party. How much has he benefitted from Rep Presidential and Senatorial candidates campaigning for him? Sen. Hegel has had a great record about abortion. But to advance his position concerning terrorists rights, he will stand with those who don't care about the unborn.

    Simple, really.

    Hagel is playing the odds.

    Sacrificing his integrity to be re-elected.

    What more can you expect from a money grubbing politician? Oh how we need a new party that actually cares about this country and not it's own lust for power at any cost.

    Senators are always running for re-election.

    I thought you knew that.

    Okay, carpro, I will roll back some of your ignorance. :)

    Senator Hagel is retiring from the Senate come January. He is not standing for re-election.

    So he's angling for a job in an Obama administration.

    His real problem is still his lack of political integrity. Same as Ron Paul and Bob Barr.

    Well, carpro, I can't take care of all of your ignorance. Some of it you'll just have to handle on your own. :)

    Have a good day, brother. :godisgood:

    Actually, I am having problems with my Internet connection and I lose access for several hours at a time. I will have to have Suddenlink look at next week.

    Speaking of integrity:
    "Details! Details!" - Ed :rolleyes:
    Once again, uh - integrity?? Does that extend to BB members??
    Although I have to agree with KenH, here, as concerns Sen. Hagel, for a change (and I am no particularly great fan of any of the above mentioned political individuals), uh - I unfortunately missed the office you two happened to be contesting for. What was it again??

    FTR, you both seem to have a good handle on the fine art of political dialogue and debate. :rolleyes:

    Thank you.

    We don't seem to have your gift of satire though. :thumbs:

    ...Or is it really a gift?
