Re: Can/will Obama win a second term?

It's true that it is rather alarming, the disproportionate percentage of modern era US presidents who served in the military. While nothing should preclude someone who chose any particular profession--military included--from entering politics, I agree with the clear suggestion that this marks a disturbing trend of the increased militarisation of American culture as it moved away from its pre-Teddy Roosevelt isolationist policies...and one which was has been refreshingly broken by men such as Clinton and Obama. Well spotted.
