He doesn't have one, but that isn't relevant to his qualifications for President?
So why all this banging on about McCain's?
I think because McCain has used his military record as a means of getting people to believe he is something that he is not..a hero!
He admits himself that he received privileged treatment as a P.O.W. and no doubt would have been sent back to Vietnam to continue his tour of duty if he had accepted early release - somehow, I think this smacks more of cowardice than having the other men's interests at heart, many of whom , I guess, were sent back to fight.
He is a shallow man in my opinion.
