I do not really find this surprising, given the unpopularity of the war and the fact that they are all democrats in the first place. Military service does not qualify one for any public office, but it does pull the heart strings of patriotism in an election year. In that sense, these war veterans may, in some cases, be exploiting their voluntary service with the zeal of opportunism that comes from lacking current employment. More importantly, politicians need to realize the truly fascist and vile nature of Islam and begin acting in ways protective of the U.S. and its citizens and I do not see much, if any, of that on either side of the aisle.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by "they" when you say "they are all democrats". "They" who are running on the ticket? "They" who serve in Iraq? "They" who all have bleeding purple hearts? I also would not assume that people are running simply because of opportunism without evidence to that affect. I agree with you that politicians (and the public, I might add) needs to understand the vile nature of extremists everywhere. Hatred and ignorance runs deep in many parts of the world and all the talk in the world will not change that.
