For me, it's a reflection on Gates' "character" that he didn't publish the book before the election and keep America from the destruction of a second Obama term.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I agree.  But if you look at his history not a shock
  Remember the paper he wrote with Jim Baker before leaving office encouraging the USA to make nice with Iran?

I disagree.  This book likely would not have made that much difference in the reelection and he would have been widely panned for trying to derail an election with his book had he published it before the election.  Smart move and it lends credence to his criticisms that he made a difficult choice to wait.

Perhaps.

If you determine it based on how it would be perceived by and screamed about by the left, you're right.

My comment was based on my view that anything and everything possible should have been done to deny Obama a second term.  Every vote turned away based on accurate information about what a lousy CinC Obama is would have been a good thing.

Clearly Gates agrees with you about perception's trumping reality.
Character still matters.  It always matters.
