ABSTRACT
Presents a brief rating of the campaign efforts of United States Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark. For all his talk of his national security credentials, I'm beginning to think that Wesley Clark is just Howard Dean with stars on his shoulders. Indeed, when it comes to his critique of U.S. foreign policy, Clark sounds virtually indistinguishable from his ill-tempered rival. Last week, Clark told the "Concord Monitor" that one of the "greatest lies" being peddled today is that September 11, 2001, couldn't have been prevented, echoing the numerous occasions when Clark has come close to pinning blame for the attacks directly on President Bush. Now, extravagant promises are a staple of presidential campaigns, but, for someone who likes to criticize Bush's hubris, Clark has a slight overconfidence problem.
