Soros Doubts (Robert Novak, December 20, 2003, Townhall)

Left-wing billionaire investor George Soros, who appeared to support Howard Dean for president, now is privately expressing doubts about the Democratic Party's front-runner.

In conversations with political friends, Soros confided he has become alarmed by Dean's recent performance and wonders whether the former Vermont governor is capable of defeating George W. Bush. In one such chat, Soros suggested he is interested in retired Gen. Wesley Clark.

Who pays the piper calls the tunes...

It's entirely unfair how which ever Democrat the media focuses on is the one who has fatal flaws and can't defeat the President. Why won't they focus on the perfect, unbeatable Democrat?

Calls the tunes. More like "buys" and "sells". Soros bought Dean at 30 now he is selling at 15. Lets hope he keeps on making trades like that.

Soros is famous for shorting - looks like he is losing his touch.

Soros would be advised to read David's post on the General a few blogs down. I have seldom been less impressed about a military man's leadership skills as I am with Clark. Moreover, I have seldom see someone afforded (by whom, I still don't know) instant gravitas only to squandered so easily -- from the, his propensity to find himself in "gotcha" situations, to the even less excusable "got me's".

Please yes. Let's see Soros keep pumping millions into stupid, losing campaigns. Let's have him get this king-making phase out of his system so he can go back to more socially useful and constructive things like shorting the Dollar against the Euro and funding the hempheads.
