Hagel’s had enough

Via Chris Cilllizza’s “The Fix,” we learn that Senator Hagel will not run for re-election in 2008. Hagel is scheduled to announce this on Monday, when he apparently will also say he does not intend to run for national office.
Cillizza says that this news “creates a potentially competitive open seat, with former Sen. Bob Kerrey (D) and former Gov. Mike Johanns (R) — two titans of Cornhusker politics — mentioned prominently as his replacement.” Johanns currently is the Secretary of Agriculture. Kerrey is President of the New School in New York.
