Okay, Military guys and gals...

Kerry was on the Imus show this morning. A sort-of transcript is available via the NRO website in the segment they call the Kerry Spot. The official Imus site has it up here.

Well and good. Here's what I want to know from you guys and gals... Imus pushed Kerry to name some people that might populate his cabinet. He hedged (predictably, and probably, smartly) but Imus did get a few. Like these:

KERRY: There are a number of — General McPeak, General Clark. There are a group of about 10 or 12 admirals and generals.

I can hear the collective gagging from the Zoomies already. I know there would be a lot of gagging from dogfaces regarding General Clark. I would assume Admiral Crowe is on that list somewhere, along with General Zinni, and probably General Shalikashvili.

What are your thoughts of the Generals and Admirals surrounding the Kerry campaign as potential SECDEFs?

To start it off, I can live with the thought of Zinni and Shali, gag at the thought of McPeak and Clark, and don't have a formed opinion on Crowe.

What say youse guys?

Anonymous responses are fine - as are email responses (lemme know if I can use it or not, I know what it's like to be senior and leery of expressing opinions publicly - all confidences respected) but I'd like to hear what the rank and file think. I'll delete any moonbattery.

That is all.
