What do George Bush, Al Gore, and John McCain all have in common? Well, two things, it appears.
First, none of them has ever run a political campaign for national office in which their core platform was their military service.
Second, even thogh they didn’t need to, all of them signed Standard Form 180, authorizing the government to release all available records.
John Kerry, on the other hand, who has based his entire campaign for election on his four months in Vietnam, refuses to execute the standard form.
