With positions such as the desire to institute the draft for the Iraq war, I was not sure if I could consider Michael Smith as a legitimate candidate. Further investigation showed me a man who is as realistic about his candidacy as he is serious about it – neither he nor I fail to recognize that his candidacy is limited to his home state of Oregon.
I commend him as a person for trying to do something, but I can’t endorse him as a candidate.
UPDATE 12/29/06: In case anyone sees this without seeing the comments – Michael Smith has dropped his position of supporting a draft. I think that was a wise move.
