hmmm...no offense, I'll take Ike's organizational, diplomatic and even military awareness over McCain's anyday!

Oh, if only Alan Alda had been in Blue Velvet and Dennis Hopper had been in MASH!

Well, Eisenhower was certainly no conservative. If anything he was a moderate. He was much like McCain though his military expertise was far greater.

I'm surprised a conservative like you would choose to pay homage to Alan Alda. Well, good for you.I'd point out though that Dwight Eisenhower was ultimately the man who brokered a truce in Korea rather than fighting, and fighting, and fighting an endless war (which it had degenerated to.)I'd also like to leave you with a quote from Eisenhower (yes, he is my favorite Republican President of the past hundred years):Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in a final sense the theft from those who hunger and are not fed-- those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone-- it is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the houses of its children.It's a pity that those who pay lip service to him don't follow his counsel. There are plenty of other quotes similar to that one.

And it wasn't just Eisenhower who felt that way:Here is another quote from a man you may admire:War is a defeat for humanity.-- Pope John Paul II

Way to go Ike!
