So Don is against the war. I guess this is because of his experience in Korea. But back in the 60's, even vets were mostly for the war so this seems a bit unusual for Don. It also places him in bed (so to speak) with a gaggle of folk he would not like to be seen with publicly. The characeter has evolved at least in some areas, so perhaps this is a continuation of his journey.
By January-February 1968 and the Tet Offensive majorities had firmed up the view that the decision to enter the war had been "a mistake."**it's a big part of the reason that LBJ didn't run for reelection that year.
Well yeah, but I'm not sure we are being told that Don is against the war because of conclusions drawn after the Tet Offensive. I think we're going to hear more about the war as 1968 progesses so perhaps we'll find out for sure.

It will be interesting to see where Roger stands on the war -- WWII vet and staunch conservative that he is.
