IMHO, Clark is going to clear the field so as to make room for Hillary accepting a request at the demoratic convention to accept a nomination...either as Clark's VP, or as the Presidential candidate herself.

We shall see.

Clark was among the leaders of the Democratic candidates in the Newsweek Poll and was not far behind President Bush in a head-to-head matchup in the poll taken only days after entering the race.

News Week actually said Bush was ahead? Isn't that News Week blasphamy? Democrats are always ahead in their polls! Man, that must have really hurt.

Clark IMO is Klintler II. He's even worse than John Sandinista traitorous assclown Kerry.

Clearly, Wesley Clark is by far the toughest candidate the 'Rats could come up with. His status as a four-star general gives him credibility on national security that the others could never have. Furthermore, I don't think he'd be fool enough to pick Hitlery Clinton as his running mate--she is too divisive. I expect he'll choose someone like who appears moderate, like Bob Graham or Evan Bayh. In addition, the 50-50 nation that America was in the 2000 election still stands, with a VERY slight advantage for the Republicans.

Clark only needs one type of right stuff, e.g., money and someone to endore him. He has no money.... But he has the Clintons! This is the Wrong Stuff and the entire Country will feel the pain should Bill & Hill swing this deal!!!

I'm counting on Dean to rip the lower intestinal track out of Clark ---- the hard way!

This could be fun to watch, but keep the children away from the TV...

Just remember -- even Clinton would not leave Clark in command of NATO -- and now they present him as one who can lead the Nation!

A nation-wide poll doesn't mean sh!t when it comes to primaries. It's all about the individual states, especially right now. A winner of a couple of primaries in the beginning can kill the chances of the rest of the bunch. Clark will have a hard time beating Dean if Dean pulls of several wins.

Wesley Clark is a "Clinton" puppet! If he is at the head of the Democrat list so quickly it does not say much for the other nine dwarf "traitor" Democrat candidates. If the American people are so dumb and foolish to vote for any Democrat, they will be voting for the demise of America and their own lives and the lives of their children!

It is hard to argue that Iraq was a disaster when, in the crappy little war you, General Clark, presided over, the most powerful military on the planet took 78 days of aerial bombardment to destroy just over a dozen tanks; hard to argue that our boys shouldn't be getting picked off on the ground in Iraq when in your war they stayed up at 15,000 feet, nights only, bombing hospitals, commuter trains, refugee convoys, the Chinese embassy, etc; hard to argue that Iraq wasn't worth it when, by most accounts, there's more ethnic cleansing (Muslims against Christians) going on in "liberated" Kosovo than there was in Slobo's day.

Write to the Editor of your local paper - the sooner this is pounded in the blooder the primary will, be weakening Dean and Wes.

When you compare our President in crisis and what W. "No thrill" Clark has done in the face of adversity, President Bush has the clear advantage. As many have noted, the fence sitters need to be informed. Clark may have Clinton backing but the President has his own "ace to play"...in six months the economy will be ringing quite loudly irregardless of the media's attempts to suppress it. Supply side tax cuts will exhonerate the President!

(Drudge Report Excerpt)
As Nato's K-For peacekeepers prepared to enter the province on 12 June, they discovered the Russians had got there first.
A contingent of 200 troops, stationed in Bosnia, was already rolling towards Pristina airport.

'Third World War'
General Wesley Clark, Nato's supreme commander, immediately ordered 500 British and French paratroopers to be put on standby to occupy the airport.
''I called the [Nato] Secretary General [Javier Solana] and told him what the circumstances were,'' General Clark tells the BBC programme Moral Combat: Nato at War.
''He talked about what the risks were and what might happen if the Russian's got there first, and he said: 'Of course you have to get to the airport'.
''I said: 'Do you consider I have the authority to do so?' He said: 'Of course you do, you have transfer of authority'.''

But General Clark's plan was blocked by General Sir Mike Jackson, K-For's British commander.
"I'm not going to start the Third World War for you," he reportedly told General Clark during one heated exchange.
General Jackson tells the BBC: ''We were [looking at] a possibility....of confrontation with the Russian contingent which seemed to me probably not the right way to start off a relationship with Russians who were going to become part of my command.''

Russian plans
The Russian advance party took the airport unopposed. The world watched nervously.
A senior Russian officer, General Leonid Ivashev, tells the BBC how the Russians had plans to fly in thousands of troops.
''Let's just say that we had several airbases ready. We had battalions of paratroopers ready to leave within two hours,'' he said.

Amid fears that Russian aircraft were heading for Pristina, General Clark planned to order British tanks and armoured cars to block the runways to prevent any transport planes from landing.
General Clark said he believed it was ''an appropriate course of action''. But the plan was again vetoed by Britain.

Hillary! will run on the VP ticket...

If that's the case Clark better not embark on any "small, frail aircraft tours" and grow eyes in the back of his head.

It's hard to take any poll of Democrats seriously when just a couple of weeks ago, a poll showed that about 2/3 of Democrats could not name even one Democrat primary candidate.

Gosh, you throw a candidate into the soup that has made his position known on nothing and he shoots straight to the top. Is Clark that "unknown democratic candidate" in the polls that always beats Bush? Now, if Clark can only maintain that platform.....

This poll is 'quackery' at it's best..... 377 respondants and a MOE of 6.....

The objective: Asked enough people until Clark gets in the lead then stop........
