Dear Mr. Battaglia,
Thank you for your thoughtful input on some of the most important issues facing our country today. We recently developed formal policy positions on many key issues. These position papers are posted on our official campaign web site at http://www.clark04.com/issues.
If you have not already done so, I would be delighted if you signed up formally as a supporter. Please visit our website at www.clark04.com, where you can sign up for campaign news updates, learn more about policy positions, and find tools you can use to hold events in your home and community.
Today, America faces serious challenges. Our country has endured the deadliest external attack in its history. We feel our security threatened here at home for the first time since the Cuban Missile Crisis. America has lost over three million jobs for the first time since Herbert Hoover. As President, I will work to increase the affordability of health care and expand coverage to the 3.8 million Americans who lost their health insurance during the past four years. Meeting these challenges demands new leadership.
I am running for President of the United States because I want to return to the values and principles that have always made us great - democracy, opportunity, responsibility, and shared sacrifice for our country. I deeply appreciate your support, and I thank you for helping to bring about the positive changes that will move our country forward.
Wesley K. Clark
General (ret.), US Army
