"We're in a war right now where Americans are dying. We should be working together to bring this to an end as quickly as possible, not re-fighting a war that ended over 30 years ago. I believe President Bush served honorably, I believe that John Kerry served honorably. Let's get over it, let's stop it now."
Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona got it exactly right when he made the above statement earlier this week on the floor of the U.S. Senate.
Both Republicans and Democrats should listen to what McCain has to say on this issue. As a POW during the Vietnam War, a friend of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry and a supporter of President George W. Bush, McCain is uniquely positioned to bring some semblance of sanity to a presidential campaign that is getting way out of hand with six months still to go before election day.
