Let's welcome Chuck Hagel to our side!

All I can say is, "God bless Senator Chuck Hagel for offering to become a Democrat and work with us to win back the White House in 08! Senator Hagel has decided not to run for re-election as a Republican. Well, we can all guess why he decided not to run again just by reading between the lines. The man has had it with his own party  

Senator Hagel's record of opposing the Iraq War and everything the Bush people have done from the get-go is there for everyone to see as public record and should be enough proof for us that here goes an American we can all be proud of.

Our country has gone through enough these past seven years because of George Bush's incompetence  and his equally inept "rubber-stamp" Congress.  Every "working-stiff" and everyone of the forgotten souls of Hurricane Katrina and the 45 million uninsured Americans, etc., all deserve better - don't you all agree? We've lost the last two Presidential elections because of our own party's complacent,"good ole boy" mentality and we don't have lose this one.

I am convinced that we need Chuck Hagel on our team. Let's get up a groundswell of support for Senator Hagel.  
Let's find a good place for Senator Hagel and all welcome him to the Democratic party.

No, he's retiring, and he votes with Bush 90% of the time.  I don't really get what this diary is about.  There has been no speculation or reason to believe Hagel is looking for a party switch.

Thanks that is what I thought.

I agree- one issue he supports does not justify a 'welcome wagon.'  There is more to being a democrat than just being against the war.

I think a democratic president could use him as am ambassdor or envoy for some mission. He could do a good job there... or some cabinet position (not defense or sec. of state)

I really respect Chuck Hagel. He was against the war when most democrats were still for it...He demonstrated a lot of political courage.

But I guess if he was a Republican he must have been evil and democrats, regardless of how they vote, are all good.
