Does Clark want to be part of Dean's bait and switch, windsock, impossible-to-pin-down strategy for campaigning? Or, how stupid could Clark be? Naturally this is the Washinton Post reporting this story, and the mainstream liberal websites reposting it - another dean-pimp publication.

Gen. Clark Reportedly Is Asked to Join Dean
by Jim VandeHei and Dan Balz
Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean has asked retired Army Gen. Wesley Clark to join his campaign, if the former NATO commander does not jump into the race himself next week, and the two men discussed the vice presidency at a weekend meeting in California, sources familiar with the discussions said.
Clark, in a telephone interview yesterday, said he did not want to comment about the private meeting. Asked about reports that the two men had discussed a wide range of issues, including endorsing Dean, joining the campaign, possible roles in a Dean administration and the vice presidency, he said only, "It was a complete tour of the horizon."
Later, an adviser quoted Clark as saying, "I have only one decision to make: Will I seek the presidency?"
