Today, Senator Chuck Hagel is set to announce whether or not he will run for president. But will anyone care? The New York Times' blog, the Caucus, reported this morning that few Americans know enough about the guy to offer any opinion at all. The paper, in conjunction with CBS News, conducted a poll from last Wednesday through last night of 1,266 registered voters nationwide. 75 percent of the polled voters say "they had not heard enough about Mr. Hagel to offer an opinion of him either good or bad." For more info on the guy, read this post by Jonathan, "The Changing Dynamics of the Chuck Hagel Phenomenon."
