…which part of the elephant is the ass. Senator Chuck Hagel:
GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a frequent critic of the war, stopped short of calling for Bush’s impeachment. But he made clear that some lawmakers viewed that as an option should Bush choose to push ahead despite public sentiment against the war.
“Any president who says, I don’t care, or I will not respond to what the people of this country are saying about Iraq or anything else, or I don’t care what the Congress does, I am going to proceed – if a president really believes that, then there are – what I was pointing out, there are ways to deal with that,” said Hagel, who is considering a 2008 presidential run.
That flushing sound you here is Hagel’s presidential aspirations circling the bowl.
