Why Senator Chuck Hagel's news conference was a non-event

It seems obvious to me that when Senator Hagel had planned this conference for the media, both Newt Gingrich and Fred Thompson hadn't announced their possible bid for the Republican nomination for President in 2008. Yesterday Senator Hagel's brother was on TV implying the Senator will have an announcement and will run for President. But I think Senator Hagel is having second thoughts. He could see that his battle to end the war in Iraq and bring home the troops might be more important than his running for the Presidency. There is no way to read Senator Hagel's mind on this, but because he is a straight shooter, one day he will tell us why he did not announce he was running at the news conference yesterday. He is a real patriot in the finest meaning of the word.
