28. Simple answer: Look at the data.
Kerry polls the WORST in areas of foreign policy vs. Bush...

...injecting the ticket with a General will definitely help in this area. It matters. You don't go up against a "War Preznit" and his ability to inject 'fear' without full-metal ammunition.

It isn't just enough to say what you will do--you have to prove that you have the ability to succeed, and prove that you are more experienced in matters of foreign policy and war. Kerry is more experienced in war combat than Bush, but he has never dealt with the diplomatic/strategic aspects of war (though I could hardly say Bush has 'dealt' with this either, but most of the voting public believes differently). General Clark, however, HAS functioned as a negotiator and actually planned a war. He is currently in the Ukraine working on diplomatic relations/issues of international concern on behalf of Kerry. He will be an extraordinary choice for VP that will inject 35 years of experience in to the democratic ticket...a MUCH BETTER choice for VP than a trial lawyer who's only political experience is 4.5 years as a Senator.

Kerry/Clark vs. Bush/Cheney
