Chuck Hagel

Here's an interesting article from the Washington Post about Chuck Hagel running for president in 2008. This would be an interesting candidate and almost certainly a better president than the current (OK, that's not hard). What they're not mentioning though is that no outsiders get the Republican nomination for president. Hagel would be a tough candidate for us to beat but no divorced Episcopalian who has criticized the war is going to survive the Republican primaries. And on the outsider wing of the Republican party, it's going to be harder for him than McCain or Giulani because of their national prominence and popularity.

I would be shocked if anyone but Jeb is the Republican nominee in 2008. Nonetheless, it's an interesting article and worth checking out.
