Clark is the most qualified

Anyone else agree that Wes Clark is the best candidate for president?

I recently wrote a diary on DailyKos.com about Clark and I got a big response. I got 276 comment responses, 555 votes in my poll, and my diary got added to their list of recommended diaries because it was recommeded my so many people. Have a look and let me know what u think...

When Sharpton can beat you, you know you're screwed.

Is he the most qualified? No, not at all. What makes him more qualified than others?

Don't get me wrong I like the guy alright, I just don't think he's electable.

Explain to me how Sharpton beat Clark. Clark won Oklahoma and got second in several other states, the best Sharpton did was get 3rd in one state. Read what I wrote in my article and you would probably know that.

Sharpton beat him in South Carolina. It's right there on your link.

Yah but that was only one state. Clark beat him in every other state while he was still in the race.

But that's bad, even if it is one state.

Yeah, he's the most qualified; the most qualified to foam at the mouth at rant like a raving lunatic...he's even got Gore beat at that, and that's quite a feat.

So by that logic it is TERRIBLE that Kerry lost to Clark in Oklahoma because Clark lost to Sharpton, even if it was one state, that was bad....and Kerry had a lot of difficulty with the rest of the nomination didn't he?

(sorry for the sarcasm, it's in my nature)

Well why don't you show me how he's more qualified rather than nitpick this one comment. I mean I read your article but it really didn't really answer the question.

what's really bad for the dems in that last election isn't so much that many of them lost to al sharpton, it's that quite often al sharpton made the most sense... which is a frightening thought.

ya really gotta get annoyed at that... all they needed was a nominee with a pulse and they would have won the election, and they couldn't get that right.

I hate to agree with this, but it's true.

A lot of 2004 was run on "Anyone But Bush". Hopefully in '08 the focus will be back to the issues (which I know, it's usually hardly ever about the issues, and instead more of whoever has the most money/greatest spin doctors wins).

At this point, I haven't even decided who I might back. It's a scary thought that for the first time I may - may - even back a Republican (Gulliani).

If I may - why?

Even if the Republicans had a reasonable candidate (and I don't believe Giuliani is one), I would never vote for him because it is clear that the party is completely destructive and antithetical to every concept of a modern liberal democracy.

I just thought of something, anitram. Didn't I read somewhere that if he registered he wouldn't neccesarily register as a Republican?

In any case, that may should have been typed in a 24 font.

The Dems would have to mess up pretty badly for me to make me even remotely consider that option.
