Jon Stewart thinks that a four-star general liberal Democrat is a political improbability only slightly less absurd than a hobo mayor.
Me, I like political improbabilities. And I like Clark. I like Clark in the way I've been trying to like Dean. Which is to say, at all. Don't get me wrong. Dean is swell. But...
In echoes of wartime President Harry S. Truman, someone shouted to Clark, "Give 'em hell, General," as Clark was shaking hands with the crowd. He pumped his fist, smiled and replied, "We're going to give them the truth, and they'll think it's hell."
When Ahnuld announced that he was running for governor, GWB joked about not wanting to arm-wrestle him. But I think he may have to arm-wrestle Clark.
And for the first time in the past two years, I don't feel like sticking my head in a political oven. So to speak.
