Well ... While Air Forces are 100 years of progress unimpeded by traditions, Navies are 1000 years of traditions unimpeded by progress.

It's a well known fact.  [:D

Interesting coincidence with the Democrats being given the boot out of the Oval Office.

Much of the pushback against this came from the sailors themselves. This is more like the Brexit in a sense. The removal of the Democrats from office (The Administration, House and Senate) means there is no practical way or will to force this over the objections of the sailors. Had Clinton won the election their objections would have been forcefully overridden and the scene implemented regardless.

I thought this was strictly a USN matter?  How does whether the Democratic Party win/lose come to play?

The change was being pushed by the Secretary of the Navy - a civilian political appointment - not the USN.

Don't be too modest. That would be a second weakness.
