Brian Adam Jones, Task & Purpose: 6 Military Leaders Who Could Run For President In 2016

Amid 2016 presidential election buzz, here are six men of military background who could make a run for the White House.

There’s a troubling trend in American politics — the absence of military experience in our leaders. Many of America’s 44 presidents and commanders in chief were career military men, starting with Gen. George Washington and reaching a peak with a string of former Union Civil War leaders during reconstruction. But America hasn’t had a career military leader in the White House since President Dwight Eisenhower in 1960, and hasn’t had a president with active military experience in more than 20 years since President George H.W. Bush, a former World War II pilot with a heroic record, who lost re-election in 1992.

: The probability of these men running is zero .... but it would be interesting if they did.
