Reinstating The Draft

Another of those thoughts going through my head has been that if GW is re-elected, The Draft will be reinstated. And then today, Sen. Chuck Hagel, a Vietnam War veteran and influential member of the Foreign Relations Committee came out in favour of reinstating The Draft. Charlie Rangel, Congressman from New York, has been in favour of this for a while. You can hear more discussion at:
The discussion is rather interesting. As Brian Lehrer says above in the segment from his show, the Progressive point of view during the Vietnam war was against The Draft; now it is for The Draft.
