Wes Clark PAC (WesPac) has officially launched.
www.wespac2004.com

"Thats why Im very excited to tell you about the launch of my new organization, WesPAC Securing Americas Future, and to invite you to join me in this new endeavor. WesPAC is a results-oriented political action committee with two central objectives: first, to replace the current, radical Administration and its political allies; and second, to provide leadership in national security and to advocate for a strong, sound foreign policy.

WesPAC can make a difference in this Novembers elections, and in our countrys security and prosperity in the months and years ahead. But I cant do it without you. Please sign up to join WesPAC today and make a financial contribution to help us take our message across America!

I am proud to have already traveled frequently for Senator Kerry, making campaign stops in key battleground states and planning additional trips to Ohio, Alabama, and Oklahoma in the very near future. Ill also continue to speak out aggressively through the media and other forums, like my recent appearances on MSNBC and CNN, to point out the foreign policy failures of the Bush Administration in Iraq and in waging the war on terror."

I don't think he'd be starting up this project if VP were in the cards. Hope I'm wrong.

10. It means no such thing!
It means that Wes is not waiting around waiting for a decision as to what John Kerry and his VP team will decide. It means he is a doer and not a waiter. It means he feels it is imperative to take action now! It means those who have already given the $2,000 limits to the Clark and/or Kerry campaign can continue to give, give, give without no limits! It means that he will get additional media exposure to put out the Democratic/Kerry message on Foreign relations.

Also when you go to the site, please make sure to sign the 2 petitions already on the site!

12. Exactly
I fail to see how continuing to cultivate a grassroots network of progressive volunteers/donors is somehow a detriment to receiving the VP nod.

If anything, I think this raises his profile.

But regardless of where Wes lands in the VP sweepstakes, this new venture should kick much ass :toast:

33. Since This Utilizes Clark's Vast Grassroots Organization
which was rivaled only by Dean's.... maybe it could help a VP position.

Could come in handy in the General Election.

Who knows.... :)

35. Irony is:
Charlie Rangel and George Miller call for Rummy to resign (and Charlie added that if he doesn't, he's gonna draw up articles of impeachment against Bush for not firing him) and Wes opens a national security/foreign policy forum.

:) for irony.

We have a duplex and an apartment and damned if I didn't decide to do both of them at the same time. What was I thinking? Why didn't I just wear a hair shirt and flail myself while setting a big pile of cash on the BBQ with hot sauce? :smoke:

The good news is it'll all be done fairly soon and I can once again become a civilized person.

But Wes Clark is simply the most attractive man I've ever met, heard of or seen.
He is not only physically breath-taking, his intellect, his compassion and his ability to reason through the most complex of issues to reach a workable goal just makes my heart flutter and my stomach flitter. :loveya:

BTW, it should also be noted that I think the world of Gert. And there probably isn't another woman on this planet that is so deserving of the General. She's kick-ass in her own right. :kick:

48. Calling all Democrats!
Our greatest perceived weakness among the electorate is defense and National Security. Why? Well in a nation ruled by the spinners, many people get things mixed up. Clark is correct in focusing on this issue and putting the meme out of its misery.

Unless we get a viable and humane foreign policy in place little can change in the world--and that means our economy as well. This new PAC can help us not only in the presidential election, but also in the congressional races. So I hope all of us can unite behind Clark's new effort even if it means putting aside all of the same old same old.

I will be back soon to let you know about my donation. I've signed up and signed on at WesPAC.
