In a sign that Chuck Hagel’s nomination as Secretary of Defense may have been long anticipated, several prominent left-wing figures have emerged as supporters of a forthcoming biography of Hagel.
The biography, Chuck Hagel: Moving Forward, by University of Nebraska journalism professor Charlyne Berens, is due out July 1, 2013, and appears to be part of a larger effort to position Hagel for bigger things.
[This] terrific biography brings Chuck Hagel’s straight shooting, courageous character to life. The Senator is one of kind on Capitol Hill, and Beren’s book leaves the reader waiting to witness the next chapter in Hagel’s remarkable political career.
Podesta is also the president of George Soros’ Center for American Progress. In that role, he steers the left-wing agenda in Washington, supervising a network of institutions and activist groups that moves the “progressive” agenda forward and keeps the left’s personnel employed.
After reading Charlyne Beren’s very thorough study of Chuck Hagel, I am more than ever proud to call this fearless, outspoken, passionate, and principled man “friend.” Choosing conscience over conformity, he represents the best of bipartisanship and patriotism.
