Threats are no good unless they carry weight. This one is coming in pretty light.
Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska said long-held disagreements with the Bush administration’s handling of the Iraq War may prevent him from endorsing fellow Republican Senator John McCain’s presidential bid.
“When I endorse someone, or when I work for someone, or commit to someone, I want to be behind that person in every way I can,” Hagel, who supports a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, said today on ABC’s “This Week.” “John and I have some pretty fundamental disagreements over the future of foreign policy.”
The fact that Hagel won’t endorse should actually improve McCain’s stature amongst Conservatives.
