Another question from Gregory Stock’s book is this:
Would you prefer a President who had previously been a skillful and savvy politician, a brilliant science administrator, a writer of unbending moral integrity, or a highly respected military officer?
I would prefer a President who had previously been a highly respected military officer.
Because he would be a veteran, and would most likely have actually experienced war.
And a president who has actually experienced war is less likely to wage war, unless it is absolutely necessary. And even then, he is more likely to wage it wisely.
