Reversing the Carter Era?

Chris Orr links to some interesting data on a leftward (or Ron Paul-ward) shift in political contributions among military families. It's far too small a sample size to be dispositive in any way, but it's at least suggestive that the Democrats have a chance to regain some of the ground they lost in the 1970s and '80s, when the post-Vietnam collapse in military morale, followed by the Reagan-era restoration, pushed the military's political allegiances rightward.

But of course, for that to happen, liberals would need someone to play Reagan to Bush's Carter.
