Shorter June 2007 Washington Monthly forum on how the Democrats can compete for the military vote:

Carter: Attacking Serbs was a good thing.

Cohen: Don’t get trapped in the kill zone (a.k.a., Iraq)!

Stewart: Theocracy is scary.

Exum: Be like Kennedy (and Rumsfeld)!

Douglas: Be tough like Webb!

Tyron: Ignore the generals.

Fick: You, too, can serve the empire.
