Okay, Clark may run after all
I wrote a while back that Clinton's fundraising team and top consultants had, for the most part, remained uncommitted this election cycle. I speculated that these individuals were sitting back and waiting for Gen. Wesley Clark to announce.
As time passed, I thought it less likely that Clark would run, especially as his star rose as a potential VP pick -- he could get the VP slot without having to prostrate himself to donors to fund his race.
But this makes me think a Clark candidacy is imminent:
While he's making no endorsements, former President Clinton says fellow Arkansan Wesley Clark would make a good president if he should decide to run.Ha ha, that Clinton... regardless what he says, this is an endorsement. It's also a signal to those financiers and consultants -- hold on for Clark.
I think the odds are better than even that Clark will enter the race. This may merit 1) a "how he can win" post, and 2) another post about how a Clark candidacy would impact the rest of the candidates.Posted June 28, 2003 06:35 PM | Comments (186)
