Good Job Senator Hagel!

I’m not a huge Chuck Hagel fan by any means, but I applaud those who deserve applause. Chuck Hagel deserves applause for standing firm against the Patriot Act renewal on the grounds that “more civil liberties safeguards need to be added to the proposed renewal of the Patriot Act.” Whether he’s staking this position out of genuine concern about the Act or in a shameless ploy to gain favor from voters is still unclear.

It is a ploy. The man is a political animal.

Just an observation, but one of the things I noted immediately after the story broke is that 3 of the 4 Republican senators who broke party ranks are members of the Senate Foreign Relations Cmte. I like both Sununu and Hagel. Actually I like most of the members of that committee on both sides, with the exception of Norm Coleman.
