  •  Its not my Mea Culpa, I voted Kucinich (none)
    Not that I support the immediate withdrawal plan now, but I did whenever the last time was that there was a possibility to bring the UN in (i.e. before their HQ got bombed?)

    Apart from the temptation for those who opposed the war from day one to say I told you so, I truly believe that the best candidate is the one who opposed the war from the beginning, the person whose instincts were to use force only as a last restort, the person who already understood the importance of avoiding the temptation to react to 9/11 with rash decisions (as was OBL's wont).

    Dean and Feingold have that position, but both can be painted as wussy liberals.  So Clark emerges as the guy who can say: I was against the war before it started, and yet I am committed to salvaging the campaign with a new and better strategy, plus I have the military cred to actually implement and execute a solid plan.  When I do something unpopular, people will give me the benefit of the doubt because they know I have the experience to make sound decisions.
