Nebraska's Senior and soon to be former senator.
Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel, one of the few politicians that makes CSPAN enjoyable, will promote his book America: Our Next Chapter: Tough Questions, Straight Answers
today at the Nicollet Mall Barnes & Noble at at 12:30 this afternoon and the University of Minnesota Bookstore at 7 tonight. In his book, Hagel, an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq, outlines the ways in which he thinks America can best handle the war and more importantly mend relationships with the world. Hagel draws on his past, his war experiences, and what he's experienced in Washington to form an ideal of America, and sets forth a plan he thinks will get the country to back to his ideal. He's announced that this term, his second, will be his last, and declined calls for a presidential run. As he heads into the retired life, the book will almost certainly will be the birth of a new career as political pundit, which means he'll be one of the few people that makes Lou Dobbs and Bill O'reilly enjoyable.
