230. Oh Get Real!
Let's assume that this race comes down to Clark and Dean:

Wesley Clark will win because he doesn't have "a hole in my resume" regarding foreign policy. Dean does; indeed that quote belongs to him.

Wesley Clark will win because the budget he balanced while SACEUR was roughly 3 times that of Vermont's.

Wesley Clark will win because he is on record as being against the war from the beginning, documented by his testimony to Congress and the two books he authored prior to entering the race.

Wesley Clark will win because he has raised money at the same pace as Dean, despite only being in the race for three months.

Wesley Clark will win because he has not separated the Democratic field into "us vs. them" as Dean has.

Wesley Clark will win because he was responsible for the health care of every soldier under his command, giving him practical and real experience in how to administer health care.

There are many other reasons why Wesley Clark will win. The insults and venom that is spewed by Clark's fellow Democrats is outrageous, at least until I remember that it's mostly coming not from the "Democratic wing of the Democratic party" but rather the "Green wing of the Democratic party". The Greens and the Democrats are two separate parties, of course, but that's a whole 'nother kettle of fish.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
