    Absolutely not. Being a military leader and a political leader are entirely different skill sets. The military is top-down; democracy is supposed to be bottom-up. It’s not realistic to expect an Army general to make the transition from the first mindset to the second one, especially on short notice. There may be a place for Gen. Flynn in a future administration that draws on his experience and abilities, say, as a stragetic adviser or maybe even Secretary of Defense. But his military experience doesn’t qualify him to be vice president. A politician has to listen, not command, and be flexible, not give orders. No sir, this would be a mistake. And if he said this about Muslims, that ought to disqualify him for any public office, military or political.
