Chuck Hagel Calls Out His Colleagues

This video clip has been showing up on a number of blogs since yesterday, but I don’t think it can be shown enough. I really cannot recall hearing a politician speak with more clarity and integrity than Chuck Hagel does here. I wonder if Craig and Crapo will take Hagel’s challenge and come home to Idaho willing to “look us in the eye” and explain the “coherent strategy” for Iraq that they think is worth putting 21,000 more American lives into the meat grinder for. Of course they won’t. At best they will wheel out well worn platitudes and patriotic cliches that parrot those spouted by Bush in the State of the Union.

Hegel shows us all the difference between a statesman and a politician.
