Clark is pretty weasely on the subject of Bosnia. He's the kind of calculatingly self-interested guy who survives a long time in the military without accruing that one black mark that keeps a person out of high rank.
That assessment might still make him the best candidate the dems have got. (Too easy!)
It's about our latent desire to have someone bend us over and drive, so to speak.
