  • Wesley Clark will run

    SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Aug. 20 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Retired General Wesley Clark will announce his plans to run for president by the end of the month, according to Democratic Party insider Donna Brazile.

    In a luncheon speech to the Utah Democratic Party, Brazile said that General Clark would enter the campaign and that President Bush is vulnerable on domestic and foreign policy issues. Brazile ran Vice President Al Gore's 2000 campaign and remains active in Democratic political circles.

    Indeed, General Clark acts more and more like a candidate each day, as he lashed out at the Republican administration during a media tour that has included interviews with media outlets ranging from network morning shows to syndicated radio shows.

    "It's pretty clear that General Clark has begun articulating his message and telling voters his views on a number of issues,'' said Michael K. Frisby, the media strategist for the Draft Clark 2004 Committee. Frisby said the General will be a formidable candidate.

    "None of the other Democratic candidates have raised enough money to scare General Clark away,'' said Frisby, a former political reporter and White House Correspondent for the Wall Street Journal. "When General Clark enters the race, he will do something that the other candidates have failed to do: make the case for why the country would be better off with President Bush back in Texas on his ranch."

    Don McCorkell, an organizer with the Draft Clark 2004 Committee, said that thousands of Clark supporters have been meeting regularly around the country, building an organization that will become the foundation for the Clark presidential campaign.

    "The Clark Brigade is a wave of Clark supporters who are ready to do whatever it takes to get the General elected President of the United States," McCorkell said. "Once he gives the order, our team is ready to canvas the streets in New Hampshire and bang on doors in Iowa to help people understand that General Clark is about substance over style, a man of integrity who will earn the respect of all Americans."

    About Draft Clark 2004

    Draft Clark 2004, the first political committee to advocate drafting General Wesley Clark for President, is leading the way to convince Clark to declare his candidacy. DraftClark2004.com has organized over 100 regional coordinators in 43 states across the country to support a potential Clark campaign. Thousands of active volunteers are mobilizing Clark supporters nationwide to organize local grassroots activities on behalf of the national draft movement. In addition to its national headquarters in General Clark's hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas, Draft Clark 2004 operates a campaign field office in New Hampshire. Draft Clark 2004 has filed as a PAC with the Federal Election Commission but is not affiliated with General Clark, who is not a candidate.

    No one thinks he might be a good candidate? Bad candidate?

    I think maybe he's not left enough for the Dems (hence why Dean looks like a liberal whacko even though he's really not) this year, but a formidable candidate regardless.

      he's got no chance.

      The election will almost certainly be Dean vs. Bush

They think Americans are fat, vulgar, greedy, stupid, ambitious and ignorant and so on. And they've taken as their own Michael Moore, as their representative American, someone who actually embodies all of those qualities." - Christopher Hitchens
