So because #43 failed his first year test we shouldn't trust Obama?
If only Lieberman or somebody had been around to warn #43.

So, to answer your question, I would rather have an even tempered, balanced person in the Oval Office should an attack come than a man who has a history of impulsive, erratic decisions.
A history of picking fights on the Senate floor or during negotiations in Honduras or on the campaign bus does not make very many people secure in the thought that, should the shit hit the fan, the right decision will pop out of his head.
While I fully respect the judgment of fighter pilots, having known a bunch of them, that was 40 years ago and apparently things have happened to change the man. That steely judgment to hold for the BEST shot does not seem to exist.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
