In the last few days, I have posted a lot about Senator Chuck Hagel and his effort to galvanize opinion against reckless, shoot-from-the-hip comments made by President Bush and others about Iran and other foreign policy problems.
Tonight, Hagel will appear on Bloomberg’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt.” This is from a Bloomberg release:
In an interview that airs tonight on the BLOOMBERG TELEVISION(R) network, Chuck Hagel, Senior Republican Senator and member of the Foreign Relations Committee, tells Al Hunt that presidential candidates Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton are “recklessly irresponsible” and acting like “cowboys” in criticizing rival candidate Barack Obama’s call for direct talks with Iran on its nuclear program.
When world leaders “hearing leading presidential candidates talk like cowboys with the lowest common denominator being I can be tougher than you, I’ll go to war before you or we aren’t going to talk to anybody, that’s
recklessly irresponsible,” Hagel tells Bloomberg’s Hunt.
The interview with Hagel will air tonight at 10 pm ET on Bloomberg’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” program. “Political Capital with Al Hunt” airs every Friday at 10pm ET and is repeated throughout the day Saturday and Sunday.
I’m sharing this news about Hagel’s campaign against ‘swagger’ in tribute to SusanUnPC of No Quarter who mentioned she giggles every time I mention Hagel.
