    As a general rule, I agree. My worry is that if he brings true values to politics he will be marginalized and rendered ineffective by those willing to win by any means. The nature of politics is that it attracts and rewards the worst possible candidates.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    That's why we need more like him in the halls of power. I hope and pray the vets can crash it all. They are the best this nation has produced, afterall.
    Let's Go Brandon!

    I believe in peace, love and extremely violent weapons systems... just in case that whole peace-and-love thing doesn't work out.

    No....the part where the veterans took over the government part is what I liked about the book.

    As a disabled medically retired veteran myself of OIF, I welcome it.

    I should have finished my coffee before posting. I would like to see more vets in office for sure.

    Everyone I know that has met Mike likes him, personally and professionally. Dems in N. Alabama will vote for him.

    Just keep in mind McCain was a veteran so it's no automatic guarantee of anything, including competence. Gore and Carter were also vets, I suppose John Kerry technically qualifies as well. Reagan never served except in the army film corps.
