War hero, public servant, businessman, diplomat, patriot. Hagel's having an amazing life and uses his experience and exprtise to offer an honest, fair evaluation of the state of the world, without ever saying "I told you so." Why isn't this guy running for the highest office!?! A presidential candidate of any party would be wise to get him on their ticket...or at the very least, get his endorsement.
