He’s presidential

In response to Sen. Ernie Chambers’ letter, the fact that John McCain flew fighter aircraft over enemy airspace against a foreign army in a time of ware makes him a hero by itself. The fact that he was shot down in defense of this nation further qualifies him as a hero.

I’m sure McCain would agree that five-plus years in a POW camp does not quality a person for president. It does illustrate, however, that a person has the courage and intestinal fortitude to stand up to oppression in the face of danger. I’m sure we all agree these would be good qualities for a president.

Perhaps either his years of legal training or his lack of military service has limited the ability of Sen. Chambers to analyze the facts and make an informed, intelligent decision.
