Can't say I'm overjoyed about this. Not that I've always been Chuck Hagel's #1 fan. His closeness to the voting machine industry made him a little hard to trust. But he was/is an honest conservative, and an important voice of dissent. Rumor has it that the GOP are cracking down on dissidents, which is probably bad for them in the next election. However, it's not really good for democracy either. May say more about that later.
