Voting for Vets

I’m off to vote; today is the primary election in Michigan. While I’ll be voting for a number of people, I’ll only be voting with real passion for two, both vets. While being a vet doesn’t qualify anyone for anything–there are some vets who are jerks and others with skills that don’t include governance–I’m beginning to think that being a vet should be a requirement to run for elective office–at least at the federal level. Anyone who doesn’t love America enough to put his or her life on the line for her–probably shouldn’t be involved in her governance. I’m going to chew on this one.
