Chuck Hagel's plans for 2008?

Senator Hagel has said that he won't announce his plans for 2008 until January, be that running for President, running for reelection in the Senate, or moving onto something else. The Leavenworth Street blog reported this today:

On Omaha KMTV Ch. 3's Thursday 6pm news, Joe Jordan reported that while Chuck Hagel won't reveal his Presidential plans until January 2007 at the earliest, two Hagel insiders said Hagel:

1) will NOT run for President

2) and will NOT run for re-election to the U.S. Senate.

Obviously, this is not good news for us; hopefully it is not accurate. Please email Chuck Hagel or contact his Senate office and encourage him to run.

Help Needed!

The Political Derby is about to do another one of its rankings. Their last email said:
"Now's your last chance to make your case for or against a candidate. Send your tips or dirty laundry to"
Well, let's send these same sorts of arguments to them and try to get Hagel raised in the rankings. The same goes for the Caucus Cooler ( and the Michigan Cooler ( as well.

Why I support Senator Hagel

At a time when Republicans have lost the Senate and the House, many see our chances of retaining the Presidency in 2008 as slim to none. I, however, remain confident, due to one man: Senator Chuck Hagel. When I say the name, "Senator Chuck Hagel," many people respond, "who?" And that is the biggest problem that we face. As of now, the front Republican runner is considered to be Senator McCain (AZ); however, I remain confident. Senator McCain lacks the support of a major portion of the Republican Party, the hard core social conservatives. With a mediocre (at best) conservative stance on social issues like abortion and gay marriage, Senator McCain will have a hard time winning the nomination from these voters. Senator Hagel, however, can get the support of the social conservatives, while still being supported by the centrist voters. Senator Hagel is a perfect mix: he is able to get religious and centrist Republicans, something Senator McCain will wish he would have been able to do. The only thing left to do is to spread the word about Senator Hagel. His problem as of now is recognition, as I indicated in my example. At a time when it is looking grim for Republicans, we cannot fail to do all that we can to get Senator Hagel the nomination, so that we can retain the Presidency to keep America a great country.
