Re: Question for Military Mark...

"Well that’s a great question. It’s hard to answer, but I will do my best. Clark has been prepared for General by [serving] under several presidents, both democratic and Republican. I will note that he was born in Little Rock, and it makes me feel a little creepy. It’s important to note that his career was a very impressive one; He was first in his class at West Point, a Rhodes Scholar ( like Clinton), fought in Vietnam ( unlike Clinton), has been awarded three Silver Stars, two Bronze Stars and a purple heart, he's a licensed investment banker, he has been the staff officer responsible for "world wide politico-military affairs and U.S. military strategic planning"(that's no joke job), he's commanded three Infantry companies( most people are lucky to get one), as well as graduating from the National War College, Ranger School, Command and General Staff college, he even served as a special assistant to the director of the Office of Management and Budget back in the mid seventies.

So is there favoritism and prejudice? Oh yes. It works in your favor if you are an excellent soldier and know how to deal with people, if your an excellent soldier who does not deal well with people (especially civies), then it will keep you in the lower ranks. The promotion of officers requires senate approval, so it might be corrupted, but I believe that to overlook Clark in promotion would itself have been wrong.

I also believe that if the Republican Party needed a strong candidate he would have stepped up, I don't think there is much liberalism in his blood, but people will do strange things for power."
