If Kerry deserves to be President because he earned a "Silver Star" doesn't David Hackworth deserve to be President 10X as much as Kerry does?

Hackworth's won 10 Silver Stars.

Just for reference sake, Abraham Lincoln, FDR, and Reagan never had any military service (although Abe did serve 4 mos in his local militia). all 3 men were strong leaders in the military field.

However, Carter served in the military for 7 years, but he was one of the worst as far as military leadership went.

Military service has nothing to do with personal conviction.
