As a retired U.S. Army NCO and a life member of the DAV, in addition to being active in the local Democratic party here in Georgia, I strongly urge readers to sign the petition to draft retired Gen. Wesley Clark to run for the Democratic nomination for president of the United States.
His career experience, worldview and domestic agenda are exactly what is needed in these troubled times. He is the one man who is uniquely positioned to not only run against George Bush but to soundly defeat him and return this country to sanity.
Imagine the Republican party and their right wing NeoCons attacking Clarks patriotism, or record of service to this nation. This is the one man that all true American patriots can rally behind and defeat the radical right regime in Washington that has proven to be such a disaster to our country.
Sign the petition and get active. All of America wins with Clark. It is located at http://www.draftclark.com/petition/sign.php#namelist
