There is a new video out in which a questioner at a McCain town hall event speaks at length about veterans and then ends with a sentence or two about the need to reinstate the draft if we are going to catch Osama bin Laden. McCain responds, “I don’t disagree with anything you said.”
The video is making the rounds of the interwebs. McCain’s response is a poor choice of words, but not necessarily an endorsement of the draft.
This video, however, is pretty unambiguous. It’s from several months back.
McCain does not have an unequivocal, philosophical opposition to using the draft in the war on terror. Do you know an undecided voter who is the parent of a child between 12 and 22? Make sure they’ve memorized this quote before election day, so they know exactly what they’re getting if they vote for McCain:
“I might consider it, I don’t think it’s necessary, but I might consider it if you could design a draft where everybody equally could serve.”
