Gen. Wesley K. Clark called today for "a new American patriotism" that would encourage broader public service, respect domestic dissent even in wartime and embrace international organizations like the United Nations.
To Wesley Clark, the U.N. Charter is more important than the U.S. Constitution.
As someone on television commented, Wesley Clark is France's idea of a good general.

"We've got to have a new kind of patriotism that recognizes that in times of war or peace democracy requires dialogue, disagreement and the courage to speak out," General Clark said. "And those who do it should not be condemned, but be praised."
Just let Clark get elected and see how long our ability to "dissent" lasts.
