Cokie Roberts on NPR this morning:

"The leaking of that request of General McChrystal ... for more troops puts the president in a very tough position. His lack of a military background makes it hard for him to challenge his commanders, if that's, in fact, what he decides to do."

Yes, how can Obama possibly be taken seriously on military matters when he lacks the extensive service record of, say, retired five-star generals George W. Bush and Ronald Wilson Reagan? Or, for that matter, the new go-to expert in the Beltway on matters military, multiple Medal of Honor winner Liz Cheney?
