Chuck Hagel – the real John McCain of our times?

We may not always agree with Senator Hagel (R- Nebraska) but he is honest, truthful, doesn’t work for Republican spinners & he’s not afraid to say what we don’t want to hear.

Today  Joseph Morton writes in the Omaha World-Herald that Sen. Chuck Hagel doubts Palin is ready for national office.  http://omaha.com/index.php?u_page=2835&u_sid=10435997

Quotes from Republican Senator Chuck Hagel:

“She doesn’t have any foreign policy credentials.”

“You get a passport for the first time in your life last year? I mean, I don’t know what you can say. You can’t say anything.”

“I think they ought to be just honest about it and stop the nonsense about, ’I look out my window and I see Russia and so therefore I know something about Russia,’” he said. “That kind of thing is insulting to the American people.”

“But I do think in a world that is so complicated, so interconnected and so combustible, you really got to have some people in charge that have some sense of the bigger scope of the world,” Hagel said. “I think that’s just a requirement.”

“I think it’s a stretch to, in any way, to say that she’s got the experience to be president of the United States,” Hagel said.

What about the “lipstick on a pig” hoopla:    “It’s terrible,” he said. “It debases the system.”
