Michael Ware may be very knowledgeable and his expertise precise, but he needs to be told that when he is making a formal presentation, such as the one he did with John King and his magic wall map in front of a multitude of cameras, in reference to the Afgan War, and Obama's military strategy, he MUST dress for the occassion.
There was Mr. King, dressed to the nines, as he should be, and there was Michael Ware, looking slovenly, as though he had just jumped out of bed and landed on national television. No other channel would put up with his nonsense and neither should CNN. Presentation is everything, and the way in which one appears on camera, especially in HD, is important, if he is to be taken seriously.
We all know his background and yes, he knows and understands the regions better than most, but would it hurt if he wore a jacket over his sloppy blue shirt? Just asking.

Michael Ware,Fareed Zakaria, Christiane,
Nic Robertson, Peter Bergen, Barbara Starr
and Chris Lawrence made CNN's coverage
the best. I did not have a problem with
Ware's attire. There is only 1 criticism.
CNN needs to stop saying polls are how
all Americans feel. They need to start saying
respondents,participants or those polled.
Even pollsters are warning it is how the
question is asked. Also, I thought some
on the panel were trying to confuse remarks
from Obama on Afghanistan and Iraq, He
said he would bring the troops home from
Iraq.Obama made many different statements
on Afghanistan.

CNN had the best coverage hands down.
MSNBC got on my nerves. One thing I hope
this signals is that CNN will give the reporters
a much larger role. Where was Candy Crowley?
Mo Rocca has the best tweets about the seating
arrangements.CNN please bring back the hour
of international news at noon.CNN is in the news
biz. Hand things over to the best journalists and
news team.

When you find someone who has Michael Ware's experience and contacts, lets us know. Until then, let him dress as he wants.
