No, not that war...the Vietnam War.
I thought being "against' the Vietnam war was pretty safe. I mean, who even knew that the Vietnam war was back open for debate? Well, it seems that 'Nam
is still open to debate if you are running to be Tom Carper's Republican opponent next fall.
So get out your draft card and your matches, and let's take over the "admin" building because it seems that the orthodox Republican position is to be "FOR" the Vietnam war. NEWARK, Del.(AP)- Shrugging off attacks on his college protests against the Vietnam War, U.S. Senate hopeful Jan Ting won the confidence of Delaware Republican leaders on Friday night.
Ting, a Temple University law professor who worked in the Reagan and first Bush administrations, easily won an informal straw poll among members of the state Republican Committee and state elected officials at the Christiana Hilton. Ting picked up 64 votes, while airline pilot Mike Protack garnered only 16 votes.
Ting told party leaders that he came to regret his anti-war activities as he met Vietnamese refugees and members of his family who escaped Communist China.
For the record, Delawareliberal is STILL
against the Vietnam war.
