Evidently [I didn't watch it] Wesley Clark was asked during the Donk
debate last night about his recent statement:
"And I'm very glad we've got the great team in office,
men like Colin Powell, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice,
Paul O'Neill,people I know very well-our president George W. Bush.We
need them there. ... President George Bush had the courage and the
vision... and we will always be grateful to President George
Bush for that tremendous leadership and statesmanship".
He dodged the question [natch]. This is a good opportunity to
reprint a portion of a reader's comment
that I think is germane:
"Those of us who knew him as a captain thought the country
would be short-changed if he didn't rise to very high rank," said a
retired Army colonel who was a student of Clark's when Clark taught at
West Point. But Clark's kindergarten teacher probably noted that
he doesn't play well with others. Clark "is able, though not nearly as
able as he thinks, and has tended to put his career ahead of his men to
the point of excess," said a defense consultant well acquainted with
the Army's senior officers. "He is opportunistic and lacks integrity.
He will be an absolute menace if he gets into a position where he can
exert influence on the Army because he lacks true vision and is prone
to be vindictive."

Oooo, I see I got bored & quit watching the debate too early.
BTW, here's a transcript of a speech he made in Little Rock in 2001 at a Republican fundraiser that's gonna bite him in the ass too.
No wonder Clinton is behind Clark. Clinton and Clark will always say what the audience wants to hear. The fact that what they say today conflicts with what they said yesterday is of no consequence to them.
Come to think of it, has anyone ever seen both Clark and Clinton in the same room at the same time.
