define desertion

During the last debate, Peter Jennings questioned Wesley Clark about is association with director Michael Moore. The gist of his question was this How could you accept the endorsement of a man that stood on the same stage as you and called the president of the United States a deserter?

Since that moment, blogs have been on fire. Everyone, it seems, has an opinion as to whether or not what George Bush did in 1968, when he failed to show up for National Guard duty, constitutes desertion. If you follow that link, youll find a good, comprehensive discussion of both Bushs no-show and the arguments on both sides as to whether or not it should be considered desertion. Youll have to read all the evidence and decide for yourself, but it sounds to me like it might be pretty close.
