Axelrod Kupper Plouffe

General Merrill A. McPeak (ret.): As a fighter pilot, I saw my share of combat.

As chief of staff, I led the Air Force during the first Gulf War.

And four years ago, I endorsed George Bush for President.

But this year, I¹m voting for John Kerry.

Nothing is more important to me than protecting America.  John Kerry has the strength and common sense we need in a commander in chief.  And something more - a real strategy to make America safer.
