If you are thinking about voting for John McCain for president you might want to read this. It is an op-ed written for http://www.military.com/ by Phillip Butler, who was at the U.S. Naval Academy with John McCain and was a prisoner of war in Hanoi for 8 years, including the 5 ½ years that McCain was there.
I … believe that having been a POW is no special qualification for being President of the United States. The two jobs are not the same, and POW experience is not, in my opinion, something I would look for in a presidential candidate.
Thanks to faithful reader Saul for sending me the link.
