"Commander in Chief Forum"

I haven't said much about the campaign and upcoming election.  However, tonight I watched the "Commander in Chief" program on NBC and MSNBC and the followup program with Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.  The forum was put on by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, and questions were put to the candidates by veterans. It was excellent to compare the two people.  And in Maddow's program coming a second hour, again the audience was comprised of veterans.  Some of the veterans who had asked questions of the candidates were asked their reactions to the responses to their questions.

In all honesty, my mind is made up and it's not likely to change.  But this was a fascinating look at the candidates and the followup from the questioners.  As the organizers said, they hope this is the first of what will become a constant part of presidential campaigns.  I wholeheartedly agree.

See if you can find it on line and watch both programs.  It's well worth the two hours.
