33. He needs to serve his country. It's in his blood. However...
There is no longer time or reason for Wes Clark to "build up his resume". At 60 now he is still young enough to run for President in three years, but not to start working himself up a new career ladder through stepping stone elections. Nor does he need to. Clark is more qualified to be President by far than almost anyone now in Congress.

But I am not trying to be snide. Wes should and will stay involved in politics no matter what happens in 2008. Perhaps he might someday serve in the Senate, if he isn't in the White House in 2009, could be. Or he could just as well remain a leading spokesperson for the Democratic party on a range of issues. Writing, organizing, instructing, and speaking out.

Clark does need to increase his contacts within the Democratic party, to expand his degree of influence within it, but he is already doing just that by doing what he can to help Democrats win more elections across the nation.
