How I feel about it all: sillysilly
Soundtrack: NOFX - Theme from a NOFX Album
From "Early Edition", Nov. 30, 2003 (as posted on The Left Coaster weblog). Wolf Blitzer interviews Gen. Wesley Clark:



BLITZER: Would you consider Howard Dean for your running mate?

CLARK: Certainly, I would consider Howard Dean for my running mate.

BLITZER: Would he be qualified to step in, God forbid, if you were the president and something happened to you?

...and then, the kicker:

CLARK: Well, as I said, I would consider Howard Dean for my running mate. But I wouldn't -- I'm not going to pick someone who is not qualified to be president of the United States.



Yes, I'm easily amused. Why do you ask? *dies yet again*

A diplomatic way of saying "No way in hell"? An intelligent answer considering who he was speaking of. :)

Under the same guise, "Yes, I'll consider voting for Howard Dean....." *giggles*

I just find the entire conversation amusing. I wish I'd seen it broadcast. *g* Mr. Clark was befuddled, a bit, I believe.

Er. I meant General Clark. He hasn't been "Mr." in ages.

Yay! Democrats giving the GOP perfect quote material for attack ads come the real campaign! Oh, wait. :-|

I actually took this as Clark putting his spit-polished boot in his mouth and then having to come up with something to counter it fast. If this is used in an attack ad, good. It'll make the ad look stupid. *g*
