Chuck Hagel on Meet the Press

Senator Chuck Hagel will today again take part in an Iraq discussion on Meet the Press with Tim Russert. Hagel was one of 7 GOP Senators yesterday to vote with the Democrats on the Iraq Resolution in the Senate.

Also on the show will be White House Press Secretary, Tony Snow.

"A showdown this weekend on Iraq in both the House and Senate. We'll get exclusive reaction from White House Press Secretary Tony Snow and then speak with two Senators opposed to the president's troop surge - Republican Chuck Hagel of the Foreign Relations Committee and Democrat Jack Reed of the Armed Services Committee."

Hagel on This Week

Chuck Hagel appeared this morning on ABC This Week to discuss the Iraq war debate in the Senate, but unfortunately for all of us, his colleague John McCain appeared on the same program but separately. Perhaps we were hoping for too much.

Have a look at the program here.

Hagel on ABC 'This Week' with McCain

Well, this is certainly going to be some match up.

Chuck Hagel and John McCain will be appearing on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos tomorrow in what is sure to be a fiery event.

Hagel has been extremely active on news programs in recent weeks, and is actively considering a bid for the Republican nomination. He will announce his decision within the next 2 weeks.

His passionate argument against the escalation to the Iraq war has been one of the highlights of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's hearings into Iraq.

McCain has been such a strong advocate for more troops to be sent to Iraq, that the recent announcement by President Bush has been called the "McCain Doctrine" by some opponents and pundits.

So expect the sparks to fly tomorrow. When Hagel gets fired up, he really gets fired up.

Could this be the first real debate between two possible Republican nominees?
