    Actually he did win the election. His party got the most votes. He then eliminated his opponents ability to oust him from office.

    People like to forget he got the most votes. That omission allows them to think democracy can only bring good things.

    Failure to remember than caused Gaza to go to Hamas.

    Smart Man.....only a fool would want to be part of that Dog & Pony Show. What a disgrace to the US. Just look at some of the people they zoomed in on.....Pawns with a capital P with the little p for president.

    Few things:

    1) A Medal of Honor winner is basically untouchable for life. The chain of command can make him do things within the normal day to day military stuff but can only suggest beyond that.

    2) A photo op or a political type rally such as this cannot be made mandatory. It can be highly suggested and recommended but not mandated. What are they going to do, give him a bad eval? I don't think so.

    3) Says he got out after receiving the award. The first handful of words in the article are, "Former Army Staff Sergeant Clint Romesha..." He has no chain of command.

    He already had received the highest honor possible so how is it a loss to sit through a boring speech with someone you don't know?

    Thanks for the clarification. I didn't read the article. I didn't know he is no longer in the military.
