I read this Times article about how there is bad blood between Chuck Hagel and many of the Republican hawks. From what I’ve read and listened to, it seems like many of these hawks are just still ticked about how he wasn’t lockstep with them in regards to Iraq. Also, I think Ron Elving and Ken Rudin from NPR’s It’s All Politics said it right. A lot of it is personal because Hagel did ruffle many feathers when he was in the senate.
