After watching the Democratic debate on CNN, Clark strikes me as a moderate Republican pretending to be a Democrat just to be president. It may even be a set up by the Republicans- to have him win and then further their conservative agenda. Who knows, Republicans will play dirty even if they don't have to.
I didn't like the way he said that Bush was not the compassionate conservative that he claimed to be. So, that's telling me that he may have supported this "compassionate conservatism" movement of the Reagan era. I don't like him.
I think that the only reason people like him is because he's a general and the feel that he can protect us militarily. Just the fact that he's referred to as General Clark gives him a boost.
