If Barack Obama is the democratic nominee, my dream ticket will be an
OBAMA / HAGEL ticket.
Chuck Hagel has been one of the few republicans that asked his party and the president some tough questions over the last eight years. He is a Vietnam veteran, a businessman, a member of four committees in the senate: Foreign Relations, Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, Committee on Rules and Administration and the select committee on Intelligence. He has also self imposed term limits on himself.
Senator Hagel who was a Vietnam vet opposed the surge strategy that Senator McCain vigorously supported. Currently he is a co-sponsor with Senator Jim Webb for a A Post-Iraq G.I. Bill. This is a bill that Senator John McCain is not supporting.
In a conversationwith Richard Haass, Hagel suggested that we consider direct, unconditional comprehensive bilateral talks with Iran.
It is time that people from both parties and independents demand ethical, competent leadership in Washington DC, leaders who have no allegiance to anyone but the citizens of the United States of America.
Please join me in asking both Senator Obama and Senator Chuck Hagel to come together and lead this country through the tumultuous years ahead. Both of these men have presented themselves as true men of integrity.
We have lost entirely too much time over the last twenty years in political gridlock.
Let’s end it now.
