Even after doing more research, the criticism of Cleland during that race doesn't seem that big a deal to me.<quoted text>
McCain and Kerry also served in Vietnam. The left persecuted McCain and some even minimized his service and his suffering as a POW. Both were criticized running for public office.
So you think anyone who served in Vietnam or any other war can't be criticized when running for public office because they have physical injuries?
Is that like not being able to criticize Obama because he's black?
