It goes back to thereís a lot of ill will towards Senator Hagel because when he was a Republican, he attacked President Bush mercilessly and said he was the worst President since Herbert Hoover and said the surge was the worst blunder since the Vietnam War, which was nonsense. He was anti-his own party and people ó people donít forget that.
1. McCain sez "...when he (Hagel) was a Republican.." Did Hagel change his party affiliation?
Either way, Hagel was angry at Bush for the 2000 "black daughter" campaign attacks on McCain's family far longer than McCain himself apparently was. So this diatribe about how Hagel was too mean to Bush makes little sense.
