McCain's POW video

Did anyone see this? The most comprehensive footage was released today. I thought it was pretty interesting. I can't even imagine being in that position.

It's not really politics-related per say, I just thought it was interesting. Not trying to start a debate

I will never deny him the honor he should receive for being a US veteran and for being a prisoner of war. He is a hero in that capacity. Does that mean it translates over to being a good president? I don't know, it depends on who you talk to.
Regardless of politics, he should be honored for that alone.
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I agree. He served his country. He deserves respect for being the soldier he was, not for the person he has become during this campaign.

I completely disagree. McCain is no hero, and he's a disgrace to veterans.
I did find it strange that McCain voted NO on health and education benefits for veterans.

Kinda off topic,

What I find to be so ironic is that he and his party continue to shout "elitist!" at Obama. Just because McCain was a military kid does not mean he lived as most military kids live. Both his grandfather and father were admirals, the highest rank in the Navy, so they were not middle class. McCain went to boarding school as a kid. In all of my 43 years, I have only known ONE person rich enough to attend a boarding school. Granted, I don't get to run in the "elite" crowd, but to me, boarding school is mighty elite, yer darn tootin'!

Also, my true feelings are that McCain never achieved Admiral status, and apparently he is VERY competitive when it comes to status. What's the ranking office above Admiral? Is it the Joint Chiefs of Staff, or the Commander in Chief?

McCain even said in his autobiography that his aspirations for the Oval Office were not about helping people or to achieve any greater good, it was "just a goal" he wants to attain. IMO, that translates to "just a goal" so he can beat the rank of his father and grandfather.

But back ON topic (thanks for indulging my rant), I do appreciate the horrors the VietNam soldiers and POWs suffered. I would not wish that on anyone. Except for maybe Dick Cheney. He's the real Tricky Dick - Nixon had nothing on this guy.
Being a POW does not qualify you to be president.

Anyone find the intro very art house film-ish. It's the french voiceover and the black and white images that keep messing with the gravity of the situation for me. He's a hero nonetheless.

You disagreed with them, meaning you don't think he should be respected for his service. I was wondering if that opinion extends to others who serve, since that (service) was what was being discussed.
