Now I have to listen to news-wonks yapping about McHero and how he suffered during VietNam - as though that has any bearing at all on this election.

I somewhat agree, Vietnam experience (character, however, does, as always) has little to do with this (or any) election. What I don't understand is why it had so much to do with an election when a Democrat was the one with Vietnam experience and the Republican had little such experience.
