Remember Earth lost this war.

According to JMS Sheridan was sent on morale raising tours. This is the sort of thing that resting actresses can do better - Sheridan would look horrible in a mini-skirt.

If Earth wanted to win they needed to get Sheridan to lead men into battle or possible perform the strategic planning.
