Get to know Wesley Clark

In week one, he gave conflicting statements on how he would have voted last October on the resolution authorizing force against Iraq. In week two, Democrats learned that he was still a registered lobbyist but not yet a registered Democrat. In week three, he tried out his third traveling press aide, his campaign manager quit and the Washington Post wondered whether he was violating federal election law by giving paid speeches. …

Clark sometimes confronts questions about whether he is “a Republican in disguise.” But his anti-Bush rhetoric is as sharp as any Democrat since birth. Bush will need “brothers in the 49 other states” to win in 2004, he says to cheers every time. And “if conservatives were compassionate, they wouldn’t have to put the adjective in front of it.”
