Senator (he was a Senator for awhile following his tour in Vietnam, but he doesn't talk about it much because he doesn't like to brag) Kerry punctuated his speech at the convention last night by saluting the audience. I saw a picture of the salute on the net today. Lame is the first word that came to mind. I'm inclined to give the Senator a break, though. After all, he did serve in the Navy, a service whose traditions dictate that members only render a salute while wearing a cover (hat). Kerry's drill and ceremony training likely did not include saluting while not wearing a cover. However, if he is going to use the salute in his campaign speeches, it would behoove him to find an Army or Air Force veteran (both services salute without headgear in certain circumstances) to teach him to do it properly.
