I’m over in Hong Kong with a crazy schedule and round of meetings — but rumors, good ones, still reach me.
The latest — which I wholeheartedly endorse — is that Senator Chuck Hagel may be on the verge of endorsing Barack Obama for President.
In my own view, Hagel should wait until after the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis/St. Paul to do so. We’ll see if this happens and try to assess whether this is in Hagel’s “job interests” or not at this point.
More on that later. Off to Macau to see how the odds on the presidential race are looking.
