96. Embarrassing
Like: Driving drunk, duty officer had to go pick him up
OR: Sexual misconduct

No way this guy is anti-Bush. Bush gave him his fourth star, and that is a VERY personal pick (the selectees get grip and grins with the SECDEF and the Prez).

TRADOC is a cherry job, too. All the perks, but not as much strain as many **** assignments. It's out of the operational loop--you can get a good night's sleep most nights.

This guy got caught doing something wrong, either drunk or in a compromised position, and there was no covering it up. I'll bet this guy is a dyed in the wool GOP type.

Remember Shinseki? He was Clinton's guy, which is part of the reason why he had to be marginalized.

At three stars and up, it is all political. And it is a damn minefield when the WH changes parties....
