Pondering Hagel and McCain

It seems entirely possible that either Chuck Hagel or John McCain will mount an independent Presidential candidacy. McCain is challenged in trying to win the love of conservatives, and Hagel seems like he can't be bothered to try. There have been rumors that both have been gearing up for a run.

How many independent candidacies can there be - particularly when you're speaking of two such similar personalities? And has anyone figured out what the incentive is for the two? Does one or the other need to declare first, or beat the other, or can McCain afford to compete in the GOP primary for a while, and then enter - even if Hagel has already?
