I recommend this Kos diary about Democratic Presidential candidate General Wesley Clark. Daily Kos: Wes Clark: we need to save American democracy!
Now there are some who may doubt the General’s motivations, his political savvy, or his ability to play with the big boys of the party. I am not one of those. Not any more. I have seen most of the party leaders of the past few campaigns up close and personal. Met and greeted them, heard them talk live, looked into their eyes, and watched from afar on C-SPAN speech after speech after speech. I’ve seen Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Edwards, and Dean up close and personal – but I’ve never seen anything like Clark! Is he a politician – yes. But he’s an American first, and the things he said today… with the exception of Al Gore’s recent speeches, never before have I seen a politician with the guts to so lay it on the line.
