The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Wesley Clark in 2008?

Deborah White at discusses Wesley Clark’s appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press and his viability as a potential Presidential candidate for 2008. I have thought for some time that Clark was the best candidate so far for 2008. He’s from the South and has seemingly impeccable credentials. Unless someone Swiftboats him, he would have appeal in some of the red states, which is an absolutely essential condition for a Democrat to be elected. My only reservation is that he hasn’t seemed, to me, to be all that comfortable as a campaigner. Unfortunately, politicians are elected President these days, not really good, smart, or handsome men. But of course, that's why they have the campaign, and that's why they have the election.

Stay tuned. If Wesley Clark runs, this could be interesting.
