Previewing a Hagel Candidacy

So I checked the morning headlines to see the early word on Chuck Hagel's big talk today. And indeed, he has made news. He wants the federal government to stop classifying manure as toxic waste:

Hagel, Nelson want manure off list of hazardous substances

The two U.S. senators from Nebraska are cosponsoring legislation to remove manure from a federal list of hazardous substance.

Manure is classified as a hazardous substance under a federal law commonly referred to as the Superfund law.

As the father of a two-year old, I have to take issue with Mr. Hagel's view on this.

But if he does run for President, do you think this will be part of his platform? I bet it's all about Iowa.

Right now he's a Senator from Nebraska. That's probably important to his current constituency.

Kind of an odd issue to run on, though. Waay too many jokes waiting to happen.

I certainly hope that Chuck Hagel announces he's running for President this morning. He's the best candidate out there.
