Strange observation
It just occurred to me that Wes Clark can be Commander in Chief BUT can't be SecDEF?

5. Yes
You have to wait 10 years after retirement to become Sec of Def. if you were in the Army. I don't get why they make that rule but they did.

3. How about a Gore-Clark ticket?
I think it could work.

4. Gore's work to save this planet
is so much more important than Prez....I doubt he wants it.
I support Wes Clark for the 44th President

6. If he throws in and Gore does not...
...which will probably be the case, then I support him, too. He has the necessary international credibility and military gravitas to restore our standing in the world.

7. Kerry would make a great
SecDEF. I want Wes as Commander in Chief....After * leaves office we will need his year of service to restore our international relationships and fix treaties that * ignored.

Al Gore is going to be a hero when his movie comes out next month. We need him to save us from ourselves

8. I was thinking about this as well, seems good to me. Except
if I were Al Gore I would tell the American people to take a flying leap. He was elected once and we didn't let him take office.
