151. Great post, Donna!
And, thanks for the kudos. It was a prediction in which I deperately hoped I'd be wrong. :-(

That being said, Clark handled the hardballs magnificently. I can't help but gush a little here, you know? I was expecting much worse. He was so damned studied, confident. You couldn't help but feel this brewing uber-intelligence beneath his eyes. He's so much smarter than I am... it's been ages since I've been able to say, with the utmost of confidence, that we've found a man who is the American leader we've been promised our entire lives. He absolutely embodies the word "leader." He breathes life into it. It's not just a political catch-all when it's applied to the General.

I only hope that we do not, as a party, squander this opportunity that has been laid by Clark upon our laps. I hope we meet his challenge, rise to his occassion, and truly begin holding our leadership responsible. He resembles my personal favorite President, Harry S. Truman, a man who made the tough, unpopular decisions, polls-be-damned, because he fully understood what was expected of him as the American President.

If Clark were elected, I could sleep again at night. I'd feel safer, more protected, higher-elevated in the eyes of the world.

Let's take a close, close look at putting him on the ticket. My personal preference is to have him at the top, but if he'd accept (and I'm not sure he would) the bottom of the ticket under Dean, I think I could accept that, and work harder than I've ever worked before to make it come to pass.

Thanks again, Donna Zen, for your enlightening post. :-)
