5. I know what Clark says. But what has he done? (positive please)
This isn't a bash -- although I'm a Dean supporter, I am open minded and I really want to know more about Clark. I read what he had to say in his NH meeting and the debate on Thursday and I was intrigued. But, given that he doesn't have a long history in the party or a political record to scruitinize, I need more than words. With other candidates (none of whom are perfect, I admit), I can look at what they've done and get a good idea of how they would govern as President. With Clark, I don't.

I do know that he filed a brief in support of the University in the SCOTUS affirmative action case (good) and I have the idea from somewhere that he supported gays in the military during Clinton's presidency (true?). But what else?

For example, does he have a record of supporting women in the military (e.g., reproductive rights, sexual harrassment policies, allowing them in combat, etc.)? Again, I know he SAYS he's pro-choice, but is there anything on record about women?
