I really believe you tried your best in 2004. I am resisting giving in to the rumors from back then. It wasn't easy for ANY Democrat then to jump into a race when BushInc was at its absolute strongest and anyone running was running AGAINST a strong wind, not with the wind at their backs as they are today. Not to mention that Bush had the support of many influential Democrats during that same timeframe. It was NOT easy.

You also went up against the swifts when they were getting all the airtime they wanted and you and Max Cleland did the best with what little airtime you were given to fight for Kerry.

The revisionists now say that defense never happened or was too little, but I believe you and Max did what was necessary and the rest was the fault of the many Democratic luminaries who would not join you in that task, and of course, the media's fault for pumping the volume up on the lies while downplaying the facts you and Max presented so earnestly.

I hope you end up where you want to be, Gen. Clark.

Salute.
