Somebody had to say it. He said that getting shot down in a fighter plane and being taken prisoner was not sufficient qualification to be Commander in Chief. Back in 2000, everyone thought it was Off Limits to say of GWBush "you don't vote for a nobody just because his Daddy was president, and not a very good one at that." If this had been said, people might have realized what a phony GWBush was. As it was, everyone treated such comments as Out of Bounds. Wes Clark has finally said that being a POW doesn't make McCain a military genius. Someone (not Obama) has to knock McCain off his carefully crafted pedestal. Who better than Wesley Clark? Now, of course, everyone is acting all mock-outraged over Wes Clark's comments. Once we get past the mock outrage, maybe it will start to stick. McCain is not a military genius or a war hero in the sense of being a great strategist. He suffered greatly for his country, but that hardly qualifies him to fight the War on Terror. What matters is that he can't tell Iraq from Iran from Al Qaeda.
