A draft should never even be necessary.  In the event of an invasion, or a state sponsored 9/11  magnitude attack, you would think that most young Americans (older ones too)would have the balls to enlist without being required to.  

As it is, the draft wouldn't provide the quality force we need.  To get our military personnel to the readiness level that we expect of our Armed Forces, takes far longer than the usual two year term that conscripts serve.  A draft would only serve to give us a large, poorly trained military, kind of like China's.
