Chuck Hagel On TDS: We Need An Iraq Policy "Worthy Of The Sacrifices"

Although I disagree with Chuck Hagel on pretty much everything else, he's one of the few Republicans who actually gets it when it comes to Iraq. There is nothing more dishonorable to our troops than forcing them to referee someone else's civil war.

"What each of us in elected office, I think, have as our most important responsibility is a policy worthy of the sacrifices of these young men and women."

Although Hagel declined to endorse anyone for President, he made pretty clear that he has a huge problem with McCain's position on Iraq. Is it possible he would endorse the Democratic nominee?
