    DALLAS --<i> Karl Rove had a bad moment here the other night. It came as Wesley Clark was speaking to a packed hotel ballroom, when the retired general derided the president of the United States for what was supposed to be his supreme, cinematic moment: landing on the flight deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln. "I don't think it's patriotic to dress up in a flight suit and prance around," Clark bellowed. The men had been separated from the boys.</i>

    When it comes to military and patriotic credentials, Wes Clark makes Bush look like the sniveling little mediocrity he actually is.

    Clark: Wounded and decorated during his service in Vietnam.
    Bush: A sinecure in the Texas Air Focre during the Vietnam war, AWOL during the last two years of his term.

    Clark: Head of NATO
    Bush: Head of one failed corporate venture after aniother.

    Clark: Commander of NATO forces in Bosnia
    Bush: Governor of Texas, playing Steppin Fetchit for his political backers.

    Who would you rather have as Commander in Chief?

    I'll grant you the fact that Clark was a much better asset to the military, but so was General Schwarzkopf, should he be our next President?

    And currently running the United States of America. His success in business ventures clearly outweigh the failures.

    Nice spin! His political career encompasses a bit more than that though. He's also currently Commander in Chief of the worlds most powerful military.

    Without question, George Bush.

    Oh, you are talking about Clinton's private little bitch who can't make up his mind whether he was for or again the war in Iraq. Give me a break, this guy needs to tell his grandkids war stories, not run a country. He may have military skills, but he lacks in the political arena !

    One other thing about Clark: I have yet to hear anyone in uniform (or retired from the military) say anything positive about Clark's candidacy. In fact, GEN Shelton, former Chairman of the JCS, questioned Clark's integrity - something that would be a huge insult to any other West Point graduate. But Clark seems to have sold his soul to Bill and Hillary Clinton (and Terry McAuliffe), and doesn't seem to care about Army values like integrity any more.

    ...I supportd Clark, and I don't. He's simply a better choice than Howdy-Doody.

    Don't see why not. At least he knows that Sun Tzu wasn't the sound of someone sneezing.
