So, blergh. Chuck Hagel’s big announcement about whether he was running for president turned out to be Hagel telling America, “I’m punting.” What a waste of everyone’s time and CNN’s cameras. Here’s the relevant quote from Mr. I-Can’t-Make-Up-My-Mind.

“I’m here today to announce that my family and I will make a political decision on my future later this year.”
