Gen. Wesley Clark Should Be The One

I have tried very hard to avoid arguing about the merits of the various presidential candidates. Now that the short list of Obama's VP choices has become quite visible, nearly every one looks to have significant downsides, for a multitude of reasons. Looking at the list tonight, it occurs to me that Clark will be the only one who will be looking relatively good by November.
The world is quickly moving on, and a truly gigantic flock of chickens will be home to roost by November. The debacle in Georgia is the harbinger of things that are about to come. All of the economic indicators are moving into the red zone. Any confrontation with Iran at this point could lead to an immediate and dire economic chain reaction that would not be at all comfortable for the American people. Come November, things will not look the way they appear now in late August!
Nearly all of the potential VP candidates will fail to look like beacons of hope at that point! Gen. Wesley Clark may not be perfect, but I see him as the only VP candidate who can project much of a sense of hope when all those chickens return.
It is very frightening to think that any sane American could even think about voting for John McCain. Choosing Clark at this point would be a very good move indeed.
I see that Jerome Armstrong has noted CNN reporting that Senator Joe Biden will be chosen. I would only suggest that Clark would look much, much better than Biden, come November.
