More Liberal Propaganda From ABC

ABC's Martha Raddatz conducts a pseudo-poll among American troops in Iraq and somehow finds that the choice for President is between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Only one soldier speaks up for former POW John McCain.

I don't want to imply that Martha approached scores of soldiers in order to cherrypick a few that she found pleasing to her agenda, but does anyone really believe that a majority of today's military has forgotten Democratic efforts to disenfranchise them in 2000? Or the humiliation of the Clinton era, including mass force reductions and an awful sacrifice in Mogadishu that was thrown away by the C in C?

But okay, Martha, if you're sure about this, how about we go all Starship Troopers and allow only military personnel serving in the War on Terror and combat veterans to vote for President this year? What, that's fair, isn't it?
