    Pretty good article. Certainly informative. I would also say balanced if only because they (un)wittingly(?) argue against some of the assertions they make.

    Informative as a historical background and history lesson, in my opinion.

    I can speak for my state - having served on a Senatorial and two different Congressman's nomination boards, and current serving a Congressional nomination board for several years and being able to see qualification of appointed cadets statewide, if you are not qualified, you are not getting an appointment.

    Closing this thread as it is a dupe. If you want to read more about this, please go to the Nominations forum and look under the same thread title.
