President McCain Would Bring Back the Draft?

All that saber-rattling, 100-years-in-Iraq talk, follow Bin Laden to the gates of hell braggadocio WOULD seem to point to the need to reinstate the military draft, and John McCain signaled yesterday that the draft is exactly where he'd push the nation if he's elected president.

A woman in the audience at a McCain town-hall meeting in Las Cruces, N.M., said, very logically, "If we don't reenact the draft, I don't think we'll have anyone to chase Bin Laden to the gates of hell."

And McCain responded, "Ma'am, let me say that I don't disagree with anything you said."

To which, Jon Soltz, Iraq War veteran and chairman of, said, very logically, "At least Senator McCain is being honest. A vote for him is a vote for the draft. Period. Unless Senator McCain radically changes his worldview, there would be a draft to implement his plans."

This is news. So far, the McCain campaign has not issued any denials.
