For example, if Clark was elected Governor of Arkansas, and had a liberal record, would you be more forgiving of him for his Pro-Bush comments?

1. imho - yes,
right now his political record consists of nothing but words. and it's a mixed record, of repub-leaning words and dem-leaning words. it'd help if he had some deeds to back up his supposed conversion to the dem side. it'd also help if he just had some track record in electoral politics.

2. Could you Post
some of the lavish comments Clark has made about Clinton, Democrats or their initiatives...
Balanced budgets, jobs, health care --a roll call of names cited by Clark that are democrats that he admires greatly perhaps?

I am NOT being facetious or attacking...I just find it curious that the Clark machine don't do the obvious when confronted by the 'lavish' praise Clark has heaped on the Republican leaders for the past twenty years...that they don't post Clark's comments on his praising of Clinton or Byrd or Wellstone or anyone?

Why?

3. What pro-bush comments?
Has been discussed. They are pretty much fictional.

4. they are not fictional
wes clark's speech at repub fundraiser

``...
But if you look around the world, there's a lot of work to be done. And I'm very glad we've got the great team in office: men like Colin Powell, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condolzeezza Rice, Paul O'Neill--people I know very well--our president, George W. Bush. We need them there, because we've got some tough challenges ahead in Europe.
