Wesley Clark endorses...

Hillary Clinton. From WesPAC:

"Senator Hillary Clinton has earned the support of millions of Americans in her campaign for president -- and today I am pleased to count myself among them. The world has reached a critical point, and we need a leader in the White House with the courage, intelligence and humility to navigate through many troubling challenges to our security at home and abroad. I believe Senator Clinton is that leader, and I whole-heartedly endorse her for President of the United States. Senator Clinton and I share a worldview in which diplomacy is the best first-strike tool in our arsenal; in today's complicated global system, the United States should be making more friends than enemies."

Never before have so many Americans had our well-being so closely tied to world events. Our economic and national security has become more complicated than ever before, and we deserve a leader who draws on wisdom, compassion, intelligence and moral courage -- in short, we need Hillary Clinton. She is tough but fair, a rock-solid leader equal to the many weighty challenges ahead of us."


Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post has more analysis of this endorsement. As a Clarkie from 2004, I'm sad that this basically means Clark will not run himself.

Someone wants to be Veep very badly. Don't worry Wes! Obama will forgive you despite your short sightedness!

Or will he...

Wow, I don't even know what I meant by that.
