I always liked Chuck Hagel. He was part of that dying breed of Republicans who were actually reasonable and willing to reach across the aisle. If we're going to have Republicans (which is actually in question), we need more Hagels.

Yes,Hagel,a former official in the Reagan Administration comes from a period when the GOP was still a normal political party and not a religious fundmentalist/neoconservative cult, run out of wacky churches,and FOX NEWS; on behalf of billionaires.

I agree with you. I remember when he decided he was stepping down and I was saddened. He seemed to be a conservative voice of reason and had respect for the other members of Congress. He also stood his ground on well founded criticism of George W. When Hagel left the GOP seemed to begin its spiral into total craziness.

"I think at the end of the day, people are going to look at this endorsement and see it for what it is," said Republican Sen. Mike Johanns, a personal friend of Hagel's who pointed out that the former senator angered the GOP with criticism of former President George W. Bush's handling of the war in Iraq. "It's a step in his path to try to build those bone fides that he is truly an Obama person and deserves a place in his cabinet."

What a good personal friend!! I'm glad he pointed out that Hagel criticized Bush's boondoggle in Iraq. It's funny that he thinks that Hagel is endorsing a Democrat because the GOP was angered at his criticism of Bush's boondoggle!!! Precious!!!

With good personal friends like that who needs enemies?

Johann's friendship must be as satisfying as having a pet snake.

Another Rep. with no integrity or loyalty, desperately making things up.

As election day grows near, as in all elections, the losing party will start jumping ship to cover their own behinds and make their jobs easier. Watch for multiple republican conversions in the next few days. We've already seen quite a few.

If you are applying that line of thinking to Hagel, you're wrong. He's always been a good guy, in spite of the (R) by his name. He's smart, and worth listening to.

Chuck Hagel is not a traitor... that would be Romney, palin, norquist and all his followers who do not put america first. I don't agree w/ Hagel on everything, but this guy who served in the military as did Kerrey, cares about the country and it's citizens - and is looking for the country to move forward! Dems and Obama/Biden '12!

I love my state but at the moment if Jesus was running Democrat Dave would vote against him even the Lo's endorsement.

Good for (former) Sen. Hagel. Bob Kerry has a long and distinguished record of service to this Country and I hope he's elected. That said, Hagel dates back to the old, traditional, non-radical neoconservative party known as the GOP, now the RTB.
07:00 PM on 11/01/2012
Fischer is probably right that Hagel's endorsement won't swing enough votes to Kerrey to make any difference. But Hagel's always been a straight shooter, and I applaud him for bucking his party.

They knew who he was when he critized Bush. Obviously the man has a brain, wish more of them did.

And to think the harshest critics of Obama are the ones who love Bush 2;Americas worst modern President.

I hope the Gop-ers continue in a "right" turn and Dems continue moving to the "commonsense" center. Got some good business savvy candidates this time around.

I think a lot of traditional republicans have become incredibly disenchanted with the tea party crazies and their influence in their party. They are so out of the mainstream. The Limbaughs, Trumps, Palins and Bachmanns of the world have helped morph the GOP into something well beyond anything that resembles common sense and it would appear that people are taking notice. I hope so...the country needs it.

"Republican folk find it hard to believe a member of the GOP could have a brain, think for himself, and endorse a Democrat"

And at the moment they are hating Chris Christie

Although I am a Democrat, I've always respected Chuck Hagel as principled and rational. His endorsement of Bob Kerrey is based on the fact that Ms. Fischer's published positions place her squarely in line with the rest of the Tea Party radicals that now infest Congress. Mr. Hegel realizes that if his party is ever to regain credibility, it first needs to purge itself of the Steve Kings and Michele Bachmanns and their odious progeny.
