Yes, he went to Oxford on a prestigious Rhodes scholarship.
(why do the conservatives always want to bring the subject back to Clinton, whether he's relevant to the current debate or not?
Because conservatives suffer from arrested moral development.
They are like kids who cry "but look what Johnny did" when they are caught doing something naughty.
They are incapable of taking responsibility for their actions, so they deflect.
Their role model AWOL Boy--who never admits to being wrong about anything--only reinforces and validates this behavior.
To set the record straight about Clinton and military service:
When Clinton received his induction notice he reported to his local draft board as ordered.
He was encouraged to apply for ROTC--which he did.
He later rejected ROTC classification and asked to be put back into the draft (against the objections of his ROTC commander.)
Nixon subsequently instated the draft lottery, and Clinton's number never came up.
Hence, Clinton didn't "dodge" anything. He left himself open to the draft and was prepared to go if called upon.
Clinton's actions were more honorable than Bush using his father's political connections to move to the top of the waiting list for a slot in a cush ANG unit that had no chance of deployment to Viet Nam.
And Clinton's actions were certainly more honorable than Dumbya's wartime desertion.
