That's the Hagel Effect.
We knew the right would start blasting Chuck Hagel because he had the audacity to make certain comparisons between the Iraq and Vietnam wars.
Congressman Joe went off on a tirade and said he'd vote for Hillary Clinton instead of him if it came down to them in the 08' election. Somehow what Chuck said (who is a decorated veteran of the Vietnam war) is hurting our troops. Way to go Chuck. You really got under a lot of chicken hawks feathers.
