Obama Takes A Shot at His Alma Mater

Obama and McCain at a Joint 9/11 Tribute

Speaking at Colombia University, Obama echoed McCain's sentiments about service in the military and said that ROTC should be welcomed at all campuses. Note: Repealing "Don't Ask Don't Tell" would help facilitate the long-held opposition from some collegiate administrators. He also discussed how America's more wealthy, educated classes are not populating enough of the military ranks, which anyone in the military could tell you is true through empirical observation, despite the Heritage foundation's study. Obama also hit on the Peace Corps and Americorps, which are great organizations to serve your country if you're not into heavy weaponry and lousy haircuts. A good show by both candidates.
