The Heroics of Giuliani and Romney

So my biggest problem with public figures avoiding the draft during the Vietnam era isn’t really that they wouldn’t go fight (I don’t know for sure that I would have gone myself), but it’s that they did it for such clearly self-serving reasons.  Romney’s isn’t quite as bad as Giuliani’s.  Whether I agree with someone’s opinion of the war or not, at least I can have a little respect for someone who won’t fight in a war for principled reasons, as opposed to someone who was just trying to keep their career on track and their butt out of a trench.
