Deep Thoughts about First Prez Debate

Never mentioned:

How stretched military is.

The kind of example the preemptive war policy of
Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Kristol et al. has set for other countries, such
as Russia.

Darfur.

The potential need for a military draft.

Thanks Jim Lehrer. I suppose those questions would have been too impolite.

Jim Lehrer (and also Bob Schieffer) are well known proponents of a draft. They would never ask it, and expose a candidate as a potential drafter.

Is that because they want to keep the potential for a draft secret? Why?
