I will be in Havana, Cuba at the time — with uncertain internet access — but Senator Chuck Hagel has just announced that he will hold a news conference Monday, 12 March 2007, at 10 a.m. CST (11 a.m. EST) on his “future plans.”
The meeting will be held in Bootstrapper Memorial Hall at the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s William H. and Dorothy Thompson Alumni Center.
I’m guessing Hagel is announcing the formation of his exploratory committee given the size font that his office used on the announcement. The headline came in 48 pt. font size.
Big. I suspect that if Hagel was announcing he was not running or not running for the Senate, the font would have been a more discreet, less bold size.
This is interesting news.
Just getting ready to fly to Vegas after a really enjoyable evening with Seattle’s Drinking Liberally crowd last night and a good cluster of TWN readers this morning at Starbucks.
