NOT FADE AWAY:A New Democratic Dark Horse?: Wesley Clark begins fundraising in NYC. Is the military man what the dems need to get back on track? (VIVECA NOVAK, Nov. 17, 2002, TIME)
Are dyspeptic Democrats ready to turn to a military man for leadership? Retired four-star general Wesley Clark, who has been famously opaque about his party preference and political future, met privately last week in New York City with a group of high-rolling Democrats and told them he was seriously considering a run for the White House, sources tell TIME.
Hard to see the Pelosi Party turning to a white Southern general. He'd be better off running for the Senate as a Republican against Blanche Lincoln, who's up in '04. Posted by Orrin Judd at November 19, 2002 11:25 PM
