"might have been"

Key words. Agreed, he had promise. So as not to hijack the thread, I will not say that an Army Commander who leads an attack has not figured out the function of an army commander. But he did have the best resume' of all the field potentials.

The same might be said of Kearny, Reynolds, Reno, Garnett, Ashby and other might-have-beens whose names have been forgotten. Aren't we talking about those who were lucky enough to have survived long enough to make a mark?
