The First POW President
If John McCain becomes the next President of the United States, he will make history as the first veteran of the Viet Nam War to be elected. That is a big hurdle for him, as the country has already elected two Presidents from the Viet Nam War era, who never went to war at all. One President, Bill Clinton, managed to avoid even serving in the military during a time of universal draft.
However, if John McCain is elected to the presidentcy, he will NOT be the first Prisoner of War to hold that office. We are a warrior nation, and we have already chosen a former POW to be our leader. Have you forgotten your history? If so, here’s the answer at Blogging the Revolution.
