Do you place more importance on the opinions of veterans when it comes to the war in Iraq?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 26, 2007
“I think that the opinions of those who have personal experience are important. But the issue of war is an issue of public policy, and I think everyone’s opinion on it is equally valuable.”
“I wouldn’t differentiate between the opinions of veterans or nonveterans unless they’ve served in this war, been there recently or were actively involved.”
“I think I would place more importance on the opinions of someone who has had that experience over someone who hasn’t. The more recent the experience, the more importance I would place on them.”
“I would expect their voice to carry more weight than those who haven’t experienced it.”
