Actually, it's more correct to say that the Hausman test fails to 
reject the random effects estimation.  Both fe and re are OK, but the

This is possible only if you are able to do an estimation of the 
model in which you instrument your potentially endogneous variables.

That depends on lots of things, not the least of which is the tastes 
of the referees you are blessed with.
