Combat Experience and Presidents

Mac Owens elegantly considers this: "John Kerry, has decided to confront the president on military service, contrasting his own combat experience in Vietnam with President Bush’s Vietnam-era service as a member of the Texas Air National Guard. ’If the president is going to wear a flight suit on deck,’ he said, referring to President Bush’s dramatic ’tailhook’ landing on the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln and his subsequent speech to its embarked sailors and Marines, ’I have one to match, so to speak.’" Do you need combat experience to be a good president, asks Owens?
