    After she finished law school and was an assistant professor. So very common for law professors, especially females, just off of Vietnam War. Uh huh. For some unknown reason, this is being met with a bit of skepticism. Links at site, note this is the source, so there is spin:

    I used to think it would be cool to be a Navy SEAL...I swam competitively and liked the thought of being all bad-ass and special forces, lol. So I guess when I decide to run for office I can tell all the military-types that in addition to being a military spouse, I also looked into being in the SEALs? Afterall, I did watch a Learning Channel special on them. I was crushed when I found out that a)they don't accept women and b) even if they did accept women - they have a height requirement...and at 5 feet tall...I wouldn't be accepted anyway! :(

    why is it so outlandish to think that a lawyer might want a career as a JAG officer?

    It is not like if she joined the marines that she would be expected to scramble out of some landing craft and through the surf to some hostile beach head.

    Military lawyers make a nice living... they get to serve their country and practice law.

    I don't find this at all outlandish.... I knew plenty of JAG officers - navy and marines - in my time in service and none of them were "combat arms" types or remarkably macho and brave...they were lawyers...like Hillary was a lawyer.

    methinks that if you familiarized yourself with Hillary Clinton and her opinions and actions towards military members she has come into contact with you would re-think your opinion that it is in anyway realistic that she would have considered joining the military.

    I know several JAG officers, in fact I'm married to a Captain in the Air Force who is currently attending law school...and he is currently choking back laughter at the thought of Hillary Clinton joining the miliary for ANY reason.

    I agree with you and your husband. While Hillary may or may not have been 'conservative' in high school, by her college years, the die was cast. By law school, entrenched.

    well good for him.... his opinion is somehow more valid than mine?

    I am, I would imagine, more familiar with Hillary than you.... and her opinions about the military are not at all disrespectful.
