1988: Democrats denounce Dan Quayle for his National Guard service.
1992 and 1996: Democrats praise Bill Clinton for not serving.
2000: Democrats praise Al Gore for his Vietnam service.
2000: Democrats denounce George W. Bush for his National Guard service.
2004: Democrats praise John Kerry for his Vietnam service.
2008: Democrats denounce John McCain for his Vietnam service (He's "too militaristic").
So - as a former Democrat who served - I'd like to know:
Does the Party respect military service or not?
