21. If he wins the nomination, he wins the nomination
and I'll vote for him in the General Election. But work for his campaign? Nope. He doesn't inspire the energy and enthusiasm that Governor Dean does for me. He doesn't have the charisma Dean does that acts as a catapult for action by ordinary individuals. Additionally, I know little about Clark's position on important issues and what little is known is way too conservative for this liberal. The fact that the DLC seems to be backing him via Clinton is another black mark. We DESPERATELY need to get rid of the DLC "leadership" and voting in one of their "chosen" sends the wrong message.

So far his candidacy reminds me of "Ahnold's." His supporters seem to be the abrasive, macho, "let's kick some ass" too-much-testosterone type of individuals that have an inability to give serious consideration to those arguing an opposite view which also reminds me of George "I don't CARE what you think" Bush. I understand that every campaign has those types of individuals but, for the most part, they're in the minority. This is not true with Clark supporters wherein they seem to be the VAST majority. Add to that, the support is blind. How can people possibly support a candidate when they don't even know his/her positions on the issues? Again, it's that whole military, "just follow orders" mentality which goes with the macho posturing.

If he wins, I'll vote for him just to get Bush* OUT but Boxer is up for re-election this year and I'd rather put my energies into re-electing a true liberal.
