In 2002, Andy Card explained to The New York Times why the Bush administration was suddenly talking about the need to attack Iraq: "From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August." What he didn't explain was how he managed to get through the Vietnam era by serving just a couple of years in the Merchant Marine.
