[Comment] Re: If Veterans Make Good Presidents…

<p>I agree with you that too much is being made of Kerry's Veteran status. That he then saw the wrongness of the Vietnam War and tried to do something about it *is* a credit to him: you can fight a war and hate it at the same time.</p>

<p>I think the 'hype' is an attempted foil to Bush's questioned military record, and a statement that a man who has served in conflict is better suited to issuing and managing conflict. That is why Bush Senior's attack on Iraq was more acceptable, though many questioned the motive.</p>

<p>I too wish the Kerry Campaign focussed more on his accomplishments in office – it would tell us more about what he would do in office.</p>
