  •  Clark is good on the attack.. (1+ / 0-)

    which Barack needs, IMO. He entered the '04 race very late.  He more than held his own with the wingers at Faux.  The only Democrat I have seen do that on a regular basis.  

    On the domestic side, I can't think of an issue where a liberal would have problems with Clark other than some waffling about the Iraq war.  He makes McCain's military experience seem much less important.  Certainly has the intelligence, he was first in his class at the Naval Academy.  McCain was fifth from the bottom of his class.  Also, Clark commanded NATO.  McCain has nowhere near that level of military accomplishment.  A nice contrast.

    Clark's ties to the Clintons won't hurt in the GE.  It might help with some of the older Clinton voters who seem to be having the most trouble accepting Barack.  How the media would react to Clark would be something interesting to know.
