16. Very well put
Edited on Thu Jan-08-04 08:57 AM by BeyondGeography
Clark can play offense more than Dean, as surprising as that might sound to Dean supporters. He can play the aggrieved patriot card (this is what I get for putting my life on the line for this country while George Bush was hanging out with the champagne division of the Texas Air National Guard?) and disarm the chickenhawks in a way that none of our other candidates can. If they go too negative on Clark, who served this country for 34 years, it could well backfire on them. Not so with Dean, who has a knack for making himself appear unsympathetic. Clark can play dirty, too (he will kick the shit of them, it's on the record).

That might not read like lofty reasons to support a candidate, but BushCo doesn't play on lofty levels.
