Finding An Alternative To Dean

F

Evan Thomas sings Wesley Clark’s praises and kisses his butt as the answer to Dean:

In a campaign where boldness and “authenticity” may be the Democrats’ best, if not only, hope of beating Bush, Clark’s amateur standing in the game of politics could be a virtue. Clark is widely reported to be improving on the stump, to be less long-winded and more polished in his answers. With his impressive fourth-quarter fund-raising surge (between $10 million and $11 million), he may have positioned himself to be the Democrats’ “Un-Dean.” But Clark doubts that he is doing better because of any new-found political skills. Rather, he suggests, people are gradually recognizing his essential worth. “Voters have to learn who you are,” he says. “It’s a new experience for Democrats to learn about generals.”
