It seems to me that people who have served are often less inclined to bellicosity and premature invasion syndrome.

See: the Bush II administration, full of AWOL National Guard mollycoddles and multiple student and medical deferment neo-con chickenhawks.

See: John Kerry as Secretary of State negotiating with Iran. See: Nixon negotiating with China.

On the other hand, John McCain doesn't seem to have learned much about moderation or diplomacy.

The founding fathers understood that George Washington wasn't going to be president for life, and I don't believe John Adams or Thomas Jefferson conducted military campaigns or served in uniform.
