Maybe Obama will be the first Democratic presidential candidate to get the military vote since Bill Clinton in 1996?

Depends on whether the GOP decides to bring Obama's desire to repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell. From what I've been told, the military boys can go off to fight terrorists, but don't ask them to shower in front of a dude that likes dudes. They can't handle that.

He will carry it like a tsunami it will be a landslide HOWEVER DNC must make sure over sea votes are counted and soldiers are given the chance to vote .
