45. I didn't bring up foreign policy experience
because I don't see it as a pre-requisite.

Obviously, with some Clark supporters, you have to create a special need for your candidate, claiming that his main strength is a absolute requiremnt, and the primary measure by which all other candidates should be judged.

While I like Clark, and think he would make a fne VP, I'm not buying your straw man argument. My original post asked why a dual New England ticket would not work.

So far, your only answer is to ignore the question, and create a diversion.

As for sarcasm...well, I didn't start the fire, but I'll be happy to use a controlled burn if it suits my need.
