It seems unlikely that Hagel would take money from a group named “Friends of Hamas” or any group tied to Hamas even if he harbored the deep antisemitic views his other detractors claim he has. But this is surely the ugliest nomination process I have ever seen and seems more a demonstration of the dysfunction of Washington than the failings of Chuck Hagel.

If Vic Snyder is getting hammered, it isn’t because of a poll. The fault lies much deeper than that. The corrupt PhRMA deal, the insurance company giveaways, their exemption from anti-trust laws — people understand what’s going on, and Democrats across the country are paying a price for it.
