Was he wrong?

July 1, 2008

GENERAL WESLEY CLARK: Well, I don’t think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be President.

Bob Schieffer: Really?!

Face the Nation 6/29/08

I don’t know what there is to disagree with about that statement. It’s not attacking his patriotism, so why get upset? Is that the only strong suit he’s got going for him – his time in the military? I don’t expect a president to be an expert on every thing, but I certainly expect them to be knowledgeable about many different areas affecting this nation.

What about being a pilot makes him presidential? If that is the standard by which we are going to measure people, then everyone who’s gone to a dentist is qualified to be a dentist; everyone who’s computer literate is qualified to be a programmer; every one who’s had a c-section is qualified to be an obstetrician.

You can’t have it both ways.
