Sen. Chuck Hagel doubts it. It's interesting that this is coming from a senior member on the Senate Foreign Relations committee. It's one thing if it were from an opposing party. It's another if it is from your own party. It's an even better thing if it is your own party, and someone who knows what they're talking about! I find it funny that in the article, Palin cited her state's close proximity to Russia as "evidence" of her int'l experience. Even funnier (read: dumber) is that McCain/Palin's campaign responded by saying that Biden didn't think that Obama has the experience to do it. Sounds like an after school playground fight, doesn't it? Anywho, points went up again for my home state (they were in the dumps from when J.J. Exon co-wrote the Communications Decency Act in 1996), with Hagel gaining some of my respect alongside Bob Kerrey. He's like the Republican version of Lieberman.. except that Hagel actually makes sense. BL.
