The paper says two sources with knowledge of the trip confirm the Republican Nebraska Senator is planning to accompany Obama on his upcoming Middle East stop.

Says bipartisan congressional delegations for such trips are typical, but Hagel’s silence on backing McCain and speculation of him as an Obama Veep contender adds intrigue to the pairing.

Obama spokesman refused to comment citing security concerns and a Hagel spokesman didn’t respond to requests for comment.
