This article indicates what Kerry is looking for in a VP. Clark could be a possibility. http://www.boston.com/news/politics/president/articles/2004/02/12/kerry_edwards_ticket_unlikely_aides_say/

It's truly a sad day for all of us here in the wesley_clark community. We lost who we felt was our best potential president. A great man, full of charisma, determination, and genuine concern for the people of America. Despite all this, our task is not over. We now have to look to other candidates in our party, and support them. Our goal was to bring Clark to the front of the Demcratic race and unseat George W. Bush. Now, we have the singular mission of removing Bush. But to do this, we must unite under the single banner of the Democratic party and work as hard as ever before. Here are the things we must now focus on:


  1. Supporting the Democratic party in any and every way possible to remove Bush.
  2. Writing John Kerry to offer Clark a position when he is elected.
  3. If not (2), then support Clark in a run for any other offices he may fight for.

General Clark has inspired me, as he inspired many of you, to get involved in politics. We've fought hard, which shows we can still do plenty of good. Our most important task lies ahead of us.

I would like to make a call to keep this community open for as long as possible. If Clark is to make any other political moves again, I think we as a community would like to keep track and support him.

Wes can have a bright future in the party, he is only 59, but we need to show he can lead in the party. One way for him to prove that is showing his supporters are still helping the Dems win.

If you can't do it for the presidential race, please do it on the local level. Walking into the office for a candidate you support and say, "I am supporter of Wes Clark, I worked on his 2004 campaign and am I democrat. I want to help you beat X because of X. What can I do to help?" This will show others in the party what Wes has done for the party.

I supported Gore in 2000 and his wife once tried to get me to go to jail. I worked music during the 2 live crew vs. the PMRC (Parents Music Resource Committee) over "Me So Horny." But I knew how evil Bush's pals were even then, time has only showed how wrong I was about to what level they would go to to do the wrong thing for America.

I plan on writing Kerry to tell him to find a place for Wes in his government and his campaign. I will still vote for the winner in Boston (most likely Kerry), becuase the cost of not doing so is too high.

But it is your right to do to nothing for any democrat in the fall, and I hope Kerry wins so it will still be your right to do so in the future.

Douglas

Let's still go out and beat Bush.

"I was able to meet Wes Clark and when I talked to him, I could tell he was listening, like no one else was in the room. Tonight, when he saw that woman crying and called her over, for no other reason than to console her, again, like no one else was in the room, it reminded me what a treasure we have lost."

Clark has quit the race. I'm at turns livid and depressed about this. I had the highest hopes that he would pull off a miracle and come from behind to trump Kerry and Edwards. But it wasn't to be. Not enough experience. Too many political faux pas early on. Ignoring Iowa. A media that seemed determined to discount him at every corner. It could be all of these things or nothing.

Anyone who reads the wesley_clark forum can see the passion we had for his candidacy. The article I've linked to mentions the huge success he had at fundraising. Most of all, he is an inspiration for anyone who thought that the hard issues wouldn't be tackled, or that you needed to be a "Beltway insider" to succeed in modern day politics.

Clark may have lost this battle, but he's sown a lot of seeds for future victories. If nothing else, the fact that he energized so many Americans to come out and fight, to vote, to campaign...that is a triumph in this day and age.

It's an easy move to back the obvious winner, especially when that winner turns out to not be so obvious...ask everyone who was convinced Dean had it in the bag. It takes real courage to back the underdog and fight for it all the way. Wes Clark ignited my passion for politics and awakened my patriotism that had been buried under years of cynicism and apathy.

For this alone, I am glad to have supported him, and I will do everything I can to make sure a candidate gets elected that can beat Bush and provide better leadership for this country. I'm still not sure who that is yet, but I will say this: Kerry's comments about Clark's campaign were generous and respectful. If Kerry does win, I got a feeling we'll see the General in his cabinet somewhere. Maybe Secretary of Defense or State. Who knows?

This battle is over, sadly. But the war goes on. General Clark, if you're reading this....thank you. You made me a believer again.

Where will the $700,00 (+/-) that Clark just raised go?
