Clark supporters: Could you tell me why he isn't a "Spoiler."
Advertisements [?]
A candidate being run as a "Military Man" as an alternative to all the other Dem candidates and particularly to foil John Kerry's candidacy.

How was his "political action committee" able to raise money for an ad for a candidate who hasn't even declared yet. Where did these big bucks come from when other candidates like Dean and Kuchinich had to start off with the "tin cup" held out just to get donations from us "little guys?"

If he declares as a Democratic Candidate and picks up votes in places like SC and other military loving states then he will cancel out the other strong candidates. He could be like a Ross Perot syphoning off votes and splitting our party.

I saw his ad on CNN today. I didn't like it. It was alarming to me. Flags and military music making him look like Bush appearances at the height of the Iraq invasion. The ad seemed to be designed to appeal to the "tough military types," out there. It said nothing but that we needed Wesley Clark "to save our country." Excuse Me? This ad really turned me off.

So who's giving the big bucks to the Clark campaign, huh?
