THE DRAFT....By the way, did anyone notice that Bush's closing statement had a gratuitous reference to maintaining a volunteer army? Kerry never even mentioned the possibility of Bush reinstating the draft, but Bush apparently felt like he had to defend himself against it anyway.

It was smart of Kerry not to bring it up, since there's not much he could do with it in a formal debate setting. (What's he going to do? Ask for a promise that Bush will never institute a draft no matter what?) Still, it's obviously a background issue that makes Bush nervous, and one that campaign surrogates are likely to keep quietly pushing in the background.
