Hagel Disappoints Nebraskans

March 12th, 2007 by Peter Slutsky

From The Hotline:

Nebraska Democratic Party Spokesperson:

“I think it is extremely disappointing that Senator Hagel would bring the entire state of Nebraska to a screeching halt by holding an elaborate ceremony to announce absolutely nothing. Nebraskans are tired of waiting for Chuck Hagel to make up his mind. He has been toying with the idea of running for President for several years. Nebraska deserves no less than two full-time representatives in the U.S. Senate. It is time for Chuck Hagel to come to a conclusion – does he want to represent the people of Nebraska – or run for President?”

United States Senator

Chuck Hagel (R-NE), declaring that he is in no way an “anti-war” candidate has just announced in Omaha, Nebraska that he will not announce whether or not he intends to run for President of the United States until later this year. He will keep his options open. This was a very weird press conference and DoubleSpeak will continue to follow the Hagel story as it unfolds.
