Wesley Clark to announce

The Boston Globe says that Wesley Clark, the former NATO commander, has told his people to crank it up, and he will announce on Labor Day. If Clark gets in, I predict that he will be immdiately catapulted to the top where he will vie with Dean for the nomination. His military credentials combined with not being a part of the political establishment will come to dominate his candidacy, entirely to the disadvantage of the other candidates, save Dean who has the anti-war crowd (and the left) locked up in part because he is also seen as an outsider. The other dry-as-dust Demo candidates will be seen even more clearly for what they are: predictable, monotonous, and utterly uninteresting. Now things might get interesting.

I don’t think Clark knows a whit about domestic policy. Witness his gaffe the other week, on one of the cable shows, concerning Medicare programs. However, he is a more attractive candidate than most of the dwarves; Lieberman excluded.


Is it possible for someone "not being a part of the political establishment" to be selected as the "NATO Commander", especially during the Clinton Administration?
