It is legitimate to look at how McCain's time in the military, and his service in Vietnam, informs his approach to foreign policy.
This seems to be the part that everyone is dancing around but few are willing to state.
John McCain's military biography will make him a WORSE President. Between suffering form the 'everything looks like a nail' syndrome that renders the military solution the first resort instead of the last, to the 'Vietnam was a failure of will' syndrome, which encourages people to subvert the Democratic process AND lie about facts on the ground, McCain's experience as well as his choice of diehard PNAC'ers as advisors suggests that his Presidency will incorporate all the worst aspects of GWB's.
It's worth discussing....
