Obama's Running Mate: Hagel

It’s going to be Chuck Hagel. From a story in today’s Lincoln Journal-Star:

A Wall Street Journal report that Sen. Chuck Hagel will accompany Sen. Barack Obama on a trip to Iraq and Afghanistan kicked up a frenzy Friday on credible political blogs.The Journal reported online that two sources confirmed the Nebraska Republican will travel with the Democratic presidential nominee to the war zones.

Picking Hagel would give The Messiah of HopeChangeHope the facade of the bipartisanship that he has been claiming to advocate all along. Of course Hagel stopped being a true Republican many years ago but that is besides the point.
