Democratic Strategiery 

You want to know why Democrats can't get the military vote? It is because they insist on insinuating that certain branches are not really in the military. For example, the National Guard. There are probably more guardsmen in Iraq than there are conventional military. Yet the Democrats go around calling these men cowards, because they are not in a regular unit. They implied this with Quayle in 1992, and they are implying it with Bush now.

With Bush, of course, they've added another twist. They say he stopped showing up for drills. The White House today released every bit of conceivable evidence proving that Bush showed up, but I doubt it will be enough.

On the other hand, does the charge of draft-dodging really hurt a presidential candidate? Clinton got elected twice, after all.
