If a newspaper produced four tons of material there are some folks who will dismiss it all as a Democratic plot. I'm always amazed at how belonging to a party means you MUST be a true believe and put aside anything damaging to your own case or candidate and put aside anything positive that applies to the other. People are FLAWED. It looks as if he, like many in that era, wanted to get out of Vietnam and got enrolled in the Guard with his Dad's help. He was not the only one who would have done that. But dimissing it all as a big Democratic plot is not the whole story: there are some real questions about his military service. I don't think it precludes him from re-election. But if we were so absolutely tough on Clinton why shouldn't we apply the same standards to President Bush...unless we only apply certain standards to the other side.
