    Still am.

    Clark was my #2 if it helps any.  That's why I never really felt comfortable jumping in on the Dean side...I liked Wes Clark and would have been more than happy to have him as the nominee.

      as well.

      As to Pontificator's questions:

      I've been a Kosser here since pre-Scoop days. My first diary posting
      http://www.dailykos.com/story/2003/12/21/232128/41
      was a discussion of whether Clark or Dean was more electable. I offer this in response to Pontificator's first question as to the cause of the Clark vs. Dean wars. Primarily it was about electibility and the assumption that Clark's military background gave him a winning edge over a wartime president. The Dean folks disagreed.

      Funny, reading through my story, you could replace "Clark" with "Kerry" and the history would be almost exactly the same as my prognostication. I suppose I could claim some validation for my views, but the fact is, we all lost.

      In answer to question number five, regarding the most important event to occur on the dailyKos, I'd have to say it was when Kos posted his account of Dean's speech at the California Democratic Convention. It fired up a lot of people here and made dKos a predominantly Dean flavored space. This happened at a time (not coincidentally, I imagine) with the beginning of Dean's ascendancy which also boosted the dailyKos to a highly visible level.
