I don’t have a crush on Barack Obama — though a slug of my friends do. Here’s the latest on the political crush front from Obama Girl:
I only wish I had met Amber Lee Ettinger last year and had gotten her to try out “Hagel Girl” first.
History might be different today. Hagel might have been at the top of the ticket — and Obama in as VP. Wow.
By the way, Chuck Hagel’s new book is officially out TODAY and is actually really good. No kidding. It’s very well written and packed with insights into the political turmoil surrounding post-9/11 politics. Hagel makes very clear that he regrets his vote in favor of the Iraq War resolution.
I’m 3/4 through it now — it’s a quick read, and full of all the reasons why Hagel (and Joe Biden actually) ought to be in the next President’s cabinet.
I will offer more serious commentary on Hagel’s book when I get time to think and write — but it’s well worth the read. . .and I typically hate the majority of these kind of political memoirs.
