We could do a lot worse. . .

. . .than to have Gen. Petraeus leading our troops into battle. A whole lot worse. Here's just one example of the 10 things I didn't know about him:
Petraeus has suffered two major injuries during his career. In 2000, he shattered his pelvis during a parachute jump. In 1991, during a training exercise at Fort Campbell, Ky., he took a bullet to the chest. He was medevaced to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where his surgeon was Bill Frist (who would later become the Senate majority leader). When he felt ready to be discharged, he persuaded the hospital staff to release him early by doing 50 push-ups.

Sure would be nice to have him on the ticket this fall.
