What counts as foreign policy leadership credibility? Having a grandparent who served with George S. Patton, of course!
Dig the evidence from tonight's speeches:
Patrick Murphy: "With a grandfather who marched in General Patton's army, Senator Obama understands the needs of our nation and its military."
Claudia Kennedy: "His grandfather enlisted after Pearl Harbor and marched in Patton's army."
John Kerry: "…his grandfather who marched in Patton's army…"
So if that's all it takes, how come George C. Scott never became president? Oh wait, he did.
