Poll: Invite Hagel to Switch Parties?

Let me state a few obvious points, then open the floor.
One one hand, Chuck Hagel is far more with us on Iraq than the junior Senator from Connecticut. Should Hagel join the Democrats, we would no longer be dependent on Chicken Hawk Joe for our Senate majority.
On the other hand, Hagel's record on social and economic issues isn't what one would call progressive (anti-choice, pro-Bush tax cuts, etc.). Do we really want to try and accomodate him on those fronts?
