Wes Clark: “I Think About It Everyday”

March 2, 2007

This was a great interview with Wes Clark answering Amy’s difficult questions at the 92nd Street Y, NYC. You can download the program at Democracy Now

Gen. Wesley Clark Weighs Presidential Bid: “I Think About It Everyday”

AMY GOODMAN: We spend the hour with General Wesley Clark, the retired four-star general. He was the Supreme Allied Commander of NATO during the Kosovo War. In 2004 he unsuccessfully ran for the Democratic presidential nomination. Clark talks about his opposition to a U.S. attack on Iran; the impeachment of President Bush; the use of cluster bombs; the bombing of Radio Television Serbia in the Kosovo War under his command; US service members refusing deployments to Iraq; his own presidential ambitions and much more. [includes rush transcript]

AMY GOODMAN: What do you think of these generals who run for president?

GEN. WESLEY CLARK: I like them. It’s happened before.


AMY GOODMAN: Will it happen again?


[laughter and cheers]

then after the break…

AMY GOODMAN: Later in the interview, I followed up on that question.

AMY GOODMAN: Will you announce for president?

GEN. WESLEY CLARK: Well, I haven’t said I won’t.

AMY GOODMAN: What are you waiting for?

GEN. WESLEY CLARK: I’m waiting for several different preconditions, which I’m not at liberty to discuss. But I will tell you this: I think about it every single day. [end excerpt]
