"Clark is the perfect model of a 1990s political four-star general. Clark's rapid promotions after Dayton--winning his fourth star to head the Panama-based Southern Command and then the jewel of his European post--were both opposed by the Pentagon brass. But Clark's fellow Arkansan in the White House named him anyway. The president [Clinoccio] and the general are collaborators in a failed strategy whose consequences cast a long shadow even if soon terminated by negotiation."
During Clintigula's 8 year reign, most self respecting officers & EMs who could retire were retiring/ETS'g due to their distaste for the Liberal-Socialist CIC.
But not this guy.
No, such a sad development apparently was percieved as an "opportunity knocking" by a sorry opportunist.
...such as this Liberal-Socialist presidential wannabe.
