Earlier in September, I noted that Chuck Hagel (R-NE) made some of the more interesting remarks at the Terrorism, Security, and America's Purpose conference. Yesterday, Hagel spoke at the Council on Foreign Relations on The Middle East and U.S. Foreign Policy. The Kansas speech referenced by Hagel was delivered at Kansas State Landon Lecture Series.
While I applaud Hagel's position on foreign policy issues, I know little about his domestic policies. Yet, while I dont know if he will make it, I feel that Hagel should be someone to watch closely on the road to White House in 2008.
