I can hardly think of a national figure I WOULDN'T vote for in preference to Bush, but this story wouldn't sway me. I'd love to see the bikes built, and replace SUVs for the millions of under-5-mile trips we take every day. But electing Clark (who appeals to me so far, BTW) wouldn't do that. Love the story, though, and the bike sounds interesting.

Dean got into politics because he wanted a bike path in his town.

I couldn't vote for a guy who wanted to start a war with the Russians over an airport:

How about voting for a national guard deserter who actually started a war with a bankrupt dictator over non-existant mustard gas?

Not for him either.
Just because Gen. Mike Jackson said WWIIII . . .Sintesi

doesn't mean it's true. Another person may interpret this action as toughness in the face of a scary situation. Maybe Clark felt the Russians would flinch which they ended up doing anyway.

I think this WWIII comment is overblown and overrepeated. I really doubt we were anywhere close to armeggedon.

FWIW, the national defense posture never changed during the so-called "near amaggedon." Like I said on the other board, watch as the primary process heats up. The Left will cheer him unconditionally, and the Right will jeer him unconditionally. Both sides will ignore the facts with a definitive lack of common sense in the name of partisanship. It's our process, like it or not, right or wrong.

Do his bikes use campy or shimano? An informed voter would have to know :-)
