WASHINGTON - A leading Republican senator and prospective presidential candidate said Sunday that the war in Iraq has destabilized the Middle East and is looking more like the Vietnam conflict from a generation ago.
Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel, who received two Purple Hearts and other military honors for his service in Vietnam, reiterated his position that the United States needs to develop a strategy to leave Iraq.
Hagel scoffed at the idea that U.S. troops could be in Iraq four years from now at levels above 100,000, a contingency for which the Pentagon is preparing.

And to label him a "prospective presidential candidate" is just wishful thinking.
Originally posted by JoshGator54It is just like all these polls we have been seeing lately with McCain, Giuliani, and Arnold as the leading Rep. candidates. They are crazy, half of the people who voted for Bush think he is not conservative enough,
