Retired U.S. Army General Wesley Clark, an adviser to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, said Republican contender John McCain has oversold his military and national-security experience.
Gee, ya think?
"I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president," Clark said, referring to the incident that led to McCain's being taken prisoner of war in Vietnam. He also said McCain's service as a prisoner made him "a hero."
Here's the awful irony: If McCain had used proper judgment and not let the North Vietnamese shoot his ass out of the sky, we'd have never heard of him.
