9. Here's one.
<snip>
Suggesting the direction of his campaign in the coming days before the New Hampshire primary, Clark detailed his breadth of military experience as compared to Iowa winner and rival Sen. John Kerry.

Hes got military background but nobody in the race has the kind of background Ive got. Ive negotiated peace agreements, Ive led a major alliance in war. Its one thing to be a hero as a junior officer. Hes done that and I respect him for that. But Ive had the military leadership at the top as well as at the bottom.
<snip>
Also drawing contrasts between the two candidates was Bennett, highlighting Clark as an authority figure in foreign policy.

(Kerry) served with tremendous honor and distinction in Vietnam but the fact is he piloted a swift boat; thats not foreign policy. Yes he has foreign policy experience in the Senate but its legislative. What General Clark has is executive. He was the supreme allied commander.

He suggested that Kerrys legislative experience might be a liability.
No legislator has been elected directly to the presidency since John Kennedy, Bennett said.

The campaign pledged to continue their current plan in reaching out to voters. <snip>

To add my "personal opinion....Clark is MUCH easier on the eyes and has a more "lively" personality. JMCPO
