...but does MSNBC have a stake in Wesley Clark? They're pushing his poll numbers hard!

1. They're associated with Newsweek, which did the poll.

2. They are going for the excitement value for ratings most likely.
That is usually the ultimate motivation. It is an interesting story.

3. eh, they'll get bored soon
Then they'll go back to the latest Titney Spears public indecency incident or sports star rape trial.

8. Stevie Nicks is pissed at the overt sexuality of todays female pop stars..
I guess it's better to act like a Witch of gypsy than a "slut."

(parenthesis to indicate my disdain for the term and it's usage on any woman who doesn't conform sexually to someone elses expectations.)

4. Have not watched it much
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 12:33 PM by NNN0LHI
If you remember have they been pushing the part of the poll where it said he beats Bush in southern states 47% to 46%. Or the Bush/Clark head to head nationwide matchup numbers? Or are they talking more about how he compares to other Dems in the primary? Thanks in advance.

9. Just finished watching a segment about the poll after you mentioned it
Chris Jansing and some neo-con thug in a suit spent about 10 minutes talking about the poll and how Clark was just a passing fad, and had chance of winning the nomination. They never even mention the Clark against Bush numbers. Maybe they will later in the day?

11. clark would win in the south
I don't know if anyone else could. Clark would most likely win most if not all if not more southern clinton states. TN, AR, FL, WV, LA would all go to clark.
