There are at least two purposes to these types of questions. For one thing, the substance of the answer might be something a voter would care about. But even if they don't, it's revealing to see how a candidate answers questions like those.
In other words, even if a person doesn't care whether a guy volunteered to go to war - and in fact, I don't care - the same person might care about a candidate who might be evasive in answering such a question.
You must be a very good lawyer because you are facile at arguing positions you know are patently absurd
And I'm very sure the demographic that watches MSLSD is overly concerned why people didn't volunteer for Viet Nam. Wow... just wow.
Remind me to hire you the next time I need a good lawyer.
By the way... did O'Donnell or Mathews ask Obama in 2007-8 whilst in mid leg quiver why he didn't enlist in the military at any time in his life?
I thought not...... I wonder why?
