I applaud President-elect Obama's choice of General Shinseki to head the Department of Veterans Affairs. The man is a class act. He stood up to the Bush administration's call to fight Iraq on the cheap with too few troops and warned "beware the 12 division strategy for the 10 division Army" in his final speech in uniform due to a forced retirement. In addition, he is a wounded veteran from Vietnam. On a side note, he ran the standard Army fitness test throughout his entire career despite only having half of a foot.
