    Clark: GOP agenda at play in New Hampshire debate

    Presidential candidate Wesley Clark on Friday complained that one of the moderators in Thursday night's debate was carrying out a Republican agenda by questioning his Democratic credentials.

    Brit Hume of Fox News Channel, who worked as both moderator and questioner during the two-hour debate with the seven candidates, pressed Clark about when he had first realized he was a Democrat.

    Clark told reporters Friday, "I looked at who was asking the questions, and I think that was part of the Republican agenda in the debate."

    Democrats have complained that Fox News Channel shows a Republican bias.

    Clark joined the Democratic Party after announcing his bid for the presidency. He has said he voted for Republican presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush but also Democrats Bill Clinton and Al Gore. In defending himself as a Democrat, he cited his pro-choice, pro-affirmative action, pro-environment and pro-labor positions.

    "I think voters understand that I am a Democrat," Clark said Friday after an appearance at Rivier College in New Hampshire.

    Fox News spokesman Paul Schur said Clark should be used to facing tough questions about his record.

    "This is not the first time General Clark has been questioned about his party affiliation," Schur said. "His handlers should spend their time on more constructive things, such as trying to come up with reasons for the general's slippage in the polls."

    This guy wants to be president? He doesn't like question (that has be asked by more people than Brit Hume) and calls it a Republican agenda. Suprise Clark, you will be asked many questions about yourself and your beliefs from all types of people, that's politics.

    I agree. I think those are very fair questions and I only wish he would give a straight answer sometime soon.
