Poll question: Why did Clark lose? Poll for those who did not vote for him
If you didn't vote for Clark in the Primaries please tell us why.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

3. I think if he is back in 2008, he will have developed greater pol. cred.
At the time, he seemed kind of out of nowhere. I think people are more assured now that he's the real deal. If he had stopped supporting progressive causes, or dropped off the pundit circuit, people might have been inclined to assume he was just in it for the Presidency.

If he sticks around, I think he'll get the benefit of the doubt in 2008.

6. If he does something besides work on K street
if not , being a lobbyist rarely gets you the kind of experience a party structure looks for.

5. none of the above
I was committed to Dean well before Clark threw his hat in the ring. I know General Clark and he would make a tremendous present. He certainly is a whole bunch smarter than the jerk sitting in the Castle.

8. It's hard to chose just one.
There were so many reasons not to vote for him. All of the above are valid reasons not to have voted for him.

For me, the primary reasons were that he was in the military for 30 years and that he wasn't a Democrat until he decided that he wanted to be president.

I will re-evaluate my opinion of him if he is still around and still supporting progressive causes in 2008.
