114. Clark is likable
Edited on Wed Nov-26-03 02:36 AM by fujiyama
My dad and I have been discussing the primary process the entire time and we've both liked Clark.

My family is liberal, and while I would say we've liked Kerry, especially my mom, we've noticed that he has a tendancy to not get to the point quickly. I myself believe he would make the best president of all the candidates running, being that he has the experience in government and is familiar and has a great liberal record in most important issues like the environment, economic policy, etc. I also think his experience in such commitees as intelligence, make him especially attractive as a candidate. Still I've noticed a tendancy to kinda lose a person's attention. He seems to think in complex terms, which I find great, but I wonder if that would win many people over.

I myself have liked Clark since I started seeing him talk on CNN when the war broke out. He always gave a rational, reasonable analysis of the war, often times critical of the administration. It was especially rare at that time to see that sort of thing.

However, I was really impressed with him only after his appearance on Bill Maher's show where he gave a clear defense of liberalism, rather than try to avoid being called one. It was especially great to see that.

It's quite clear that he is greatest threat to Bush. Definetely of all of the candidates, this would give Rove the most trouble.

I especially believe he would be competetive in states such as WV, WI, IA, MN, NM PA, OH, AR, and LA. It is especially crucial for the candidate to be competetive in the great lakes area (most states in this region were extremely close), PA, and SOME southern states, not to mention southwestern states like AR and NV (we may be able to win atleast one of the two states if we play it right).

Clark could almost definetely win most, if not all of the states Gore did, and pick up a few more of those mentioned above. I honestly have a tough time believing anyone else can do it.
