Senator Chuck Hagel called a press conference yesterday to announce that he has postponed his decision about running for President.
He said, “America is facing its most divisive and difficult issue since Vietnam — the war in Iraq, an issue that I have been deeply involved in,” said Mr. Hagel, a critic of the war. “I want to keep my focus on helping find a responsible way out of this tragedy, and not divert my energy, efforts and judgment with competing political considerations.”
With all due respect to Mr. Hagel, couldn’t he just have posted this on his blog or on his website. Did he have to call a press conference to say this? In other words, he announced that he hasn’t decided to announce his candidacy for President!!! It will be interesting to see how many folks show up for his next press conference 🙂
Hello??? How out of touch with the times are some folks in Washington?
