Why Do We Register Anybody for Selective Service Anyway?

Now the Elitist Snob wants to register women for selective service, while McCain does not:

But the two presidential candidates disagree on a key foundation of any future draft: Mr. Obama supports a requirement for both men and women to register with the Selective Service, while Mr. McCain doesn’t think women should have to register.

FYI, Jimmy Carter resumed selective service registration of men in 1980.

Personally, I don’t see why we still have selective service registration.  And you’d think that someone who hung around Bill Ayers as much as Obama has would come out and say that.  Either that’s his real objective (in which case he’s lying) or his idea is to use this as another device to reinstitute the draft, or use it for some other national service corvée.  Either way, it stinks.
