``I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president,'' Clark said, referring to the incident that led to McCain's being taken prisoner of war in Vietnam. Andrew Sullivan
Wesley Clark is now and always has been a Clinton-type, but this is pretty revolting. This kind of personal attack was repulsive coming against Kerry from the far right. And it's repulsive the other way round. Both Kerry and McCain served their country honorably; and their records should be revered, period. You can make an argument against McCain's foreign policy experience and judgment on its merits. Do it and leave this crap out of it.
Is this a Clark "own goal" or Obama's? (Own goal is the soccer term for accidentally giving your opponent a goal, e.g., the advantage.) Keep it up General. Your country needs your best effort. Manipulation note: Gen. Clark asks if riding in a jet qualifies one to be president. Riding in a jet? He wants you to think McCain was dozing in seat 23C. Not. He volunteered (I think) to pilot his fighter/bomber into harm's way. Cheap trick, Wesley.
