    The first Pres Bush - a WW2 hero - lost to a draft dodger who didnt inhale in 1992. (despite having a huge job rating after the Gulf War)

    Sen Bob Dole - a war hero who lost an arm in WW2 - lost to clinton in 96.

    Sen John McCain lost to Obama in 2008.

    There will be no more war heroes in prez elections..................

    What do you base that silly idea on? We have a whole new generation of war Vets coming up as we speak.

    The last war veteran to win a Presidential election was G. H. W. Bush in 1988. The next four election cycles (Bush 1992, Dole, Gore, Kerry), the veteran lost.

    Yes, Bush was a WWII hero. He flew a slow torpedo bomber at wave top level directly into the teeth of the Japanese Navy's defenses. I would call him a hero for that.

    But if you look at everything else he has done since, I think that puts him in the category of the most evil men on the planet along with David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger.
