[quote:Deplorable NO MORE Michele B:MV8zNzg3MDM1Xzc1NTYyNTQwXzc2QUVCRjk2] [quote:hillbilly:MV8zNzg3MDM1Xzc1NTQ1ODk1XzVDQTVDRERF] Since he and his father both represented my state, I decided to read up on Al Gore Jr. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Gore (less than fiddy) [i][b]Military Service[/b] "When Gore graduated in 1969, he immediately became eligible for the military draft. His father, a vocal anti–Vietnam War critic, was facing a reelection in 1970. Gore eventually decided that enlisting in the Army would be the best way that he could contribute to the anti-war effort. This would also improve his father's reelection prospects. Although nearly all of his Harvard classmates avoided the draft and service in Vietnam, Gore believed if he found a way around military service, he would be handing an issue to his father's Republican opponent. According to Gore's Senate biography, "He appeared in uniform in his father's campaign commercials, one of which ended with his father advising: 'Son, always love your country'." Despite this, Gore Sr. lost the election. "Gore has said that his other reason for enlisting was that he did not want someone with fewer options than him to go in his place. Actor Tommy Lee Jones, a former college housemate, recalled Gore saying that "if he found a fancy way of not going, someone else would have to go in his place". His Harvard advisor, Richard Neustadt, also stated that Gore decided, "that he would have to go as an enlisted man because, he said, 'In Tennessee, that's what most people have to do.'" In addition, Michael Roche, Gore's editor for The Castle Courier, stated that "anybody who knew Al Gore in Vietnam knows he could have sat on his butt and he didn't." ... "Of his time in the Army, Gore later stated, "I didn't do the most, or run the gravest danger. But I was proud to wear my country's uniform." He also later stated that his experience in Vietnam [b]'didn't change my conclusions about the war being a terrible mistake, but it struck me that opponents to the war, including myself, really did not take into account the fact that there were an awful lot of South Vietnamese who desperately wanted to hang on to what they called freedom. Coming face to face with those sentiments expressed by people who did the laundry and ran the restaurants and worked in the fields was something I was naively unprepared for.'"[/b][/i] [/quote] Wow. This tidbit actually gave me a LITTLE, TINY, TEENSY bit of respect for him! He didn't have to go, could have found a way to dodge, coming from "money" and politics and all....but he didn't. I'm (somewhat) impressed. [/quote]
