Dear Friends and dear Senator Hagel,
I have been following politics for twenty years. C-Span has been most helpful. Typically I enjoy watching the Senate. Informative, educational in many way. Chuck Hagel always strikes me as a very intelligent man of exquisite judgment. Frankly you don't know that he has a given political party because he constantly focuses on that which is altruistic, a rare treat but not completely uncommon, thank God. I would work for this man in a minute,
based on integrity and philosophy alone.
If there is a higher intelligence at work, I can only say
Good luck and congratulations Mr. Secretary.
Sincerely, Helmut Eckart
