|Arkansas - home of the weasel? Hahahaha!! LOL!||Live Steam|

|This is all too familiar from a candidate from Arkansas. Is the weasel the state mammal of Arkansas? I guess this guy will say anything to get elected or be associated with the winning side. I am glad Bush saw through this weasel's charade and didn't give him an appointment.
I know you will say "they all do it". Well no they don't! You can say what you want about Bush, but one thing, he is consistent and doesn't govern by testing which way the wind is blowing!
Newly minted Democrat Wesley Clark blasted the Clinton administration as clueless and praised the "great team" headed by President Bush in a 2001 speech in Arkansas that Republicans circulated on transcript and video last night.
Newsweek revealed that Clark last January told two prominent governors that he was stunned when the Bush White House failed to recruit him for its national-security team after 9/11. "I would have been a Republican if [Bush adviser] Karl Rove had returned my phone calls."
White House phone logs reportedly show no phone calls to Rove from Clark, another credibility problem. Worse, the remark shows Clark to be little more than a political opportunist with no fixed ideology or principles, running not out of any sense of public service but for personal payback. (And you wonder why Bill and Hillary are such strong supporters?)
Democratic Internet-land was frantic yesterday with e-mails zooming out a killer quote from Clark's ex-boss, respected former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Hugh Shelton, who sure isn't as crazy about him as Bill Clinton.
Asked about Clark at a college forum this month, Shelton - who bounced Clark as NATO supreme commander in Europe - said: "The reason [Clark] came out of Europe early had to do with integrity and character issues, things that are very near and dear to my heart. I'm not going to say whether I'm a Republican or a Democrat. I'll just say Wes won't get my vote."

Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark reversed an earlier opinion that he likely would have voted for war in Iraq, telling a cheering college-town crowd the invasion was "a major blunder" he never would have supported.
"At the time, I probably would have voted for it, but I think that's too simple a question," The New York Times quoted Clark as saying Thursday.
He then added, the Times said, "I don't know if I would have or not. I've said it both ways, because when you get into this, what happens is you have to put yourself in a position. On balance, I probably would have voted for it."
Man this guy would make one heck of a decisive Commander in Cheif! I wonder what else he has such strong convitions for or against! LOL!!!!!!!!!

|And hard as it is to believe, some of the things that have happened in the last couple of years are NOT HIS FAULT. Sorry if this crimps your belief system, but I thought you should know.|

|With respect to these issues people who live in glass houses should definitely not throw stones. Bush has flipflopped on nearly every major pronouncement during his election campaign: "compassionate conservatism", nation building, international concensus with allies, etc. Now if the Republican dirtmongers are going to wring their hands over Clark's "lack of integrity", they should reflect on the National Guard deserter who's now occupying the White House.|

|"I'll just say Wes won't get my vote."
I hear that John Ashcroft might not vote for Wes either.
