A friend and I were discussing this last night. Should our presidents be required to serve in the military to be elected?
What kind of difference would that requirement make?
In some ways I think it would be a good idea, but I don't think its necessary. We've had decent presidents who didn't serve. I always thought one
of Clinton's biggest weaknesses was that he didn't have a clue about the military. So, when the Somalia debacle went down, it made me furious. Had
he and Aspin known what they were doing, it wouldn't have gone down the way it did.
