The article rates Wesley Clark for intellectual honesty. When he began his campaign, Wesley Clark was falsely accused of "flip-flopping" on the Iraq war. In fact, Clark said he favored the congressional resolution to give President Bush leverage with the United Nations, but he wouldn't have voted for the war itself. At last week's debate, Clark offered a different view.
