Is Chuck Hagel Unbeatable?

Is Chuck Hagel unbeatable in the general election?  A hansome, anti-war Republican and Vietnam veteran.  He seems to be the new McCain, appealing to swing voters and even some Democrats.  If he manages to win the nomination, by convincing the powerbrokers and pragmatists in the Republican machine that he can't lose in the general, are the Democrats in for a tough race in '08?  Who matches up best against Hagel?

Chuk Hagel has NO chance of winning the party nomination. Let me repeat. I am willing to put some major money he can't win the republican primary if he enters.

Is Chuck Hagel Unbeatable? - No

He won't make it out of the gates.

Today's Repukeliscum Party looks for christian wackos who hate gays and immigrants.

Hagel is not anywhere on their radar.

Re: Is Chuck Hagel Unbeatable?

I think he's actually pissed off more Republicans than John McCain has.  So yes, I think he's probably beatable.

Re: Is Chuck Hagel Unbeatable?

I think you might be right.  On the other hand, a lot of Dems don't like Hillary, but will vote for her anyway.  Moreover, a lot of Republicans didn't like Bush, but voted against the Democrat.
