Today in History (1994) - Before there was Cindy Sheehan... Herbert Shughart refuses to shake hands with President Bill Clinton following a presentation of posthumous Medals of Honor to the widows of two soldiers. The father of Randall Shughart, whose heroics in Mogadishu are depicted in Black Hawk Down, Mr. Shughart reportedly told Clinton in a private Oval Office meeting, ''You are not fit to be president of the United States. The blame for my son's death rests with the White House and with you. You are not fit to command.''
