Wes Clark on Hillary as Commander-In-Chief

I just received an email from WesPac, Gen. Wes Clark's PAC, and he brought up the main reason I support Hillary Clinton for president in these times when we have troops in the field. I just do not see Obama as being knowledgeable enough to have these types of conversations with military leaders, or the troops in the field. That is the ground on which McCain will fight the general election, and Obama cannot hold a candle to Hillary in this arena.
I quote Clark:
As you know, I'm supporting Hillary Clinton for President. I could list countless reasons why, but I think one story about Hillary sums it all up.
After the war in Kosovo was over, she and the President flew in to meet the troops. I watched her engage with the privates, sergeants and the colonels. She knew the issues, she knew the personal aspects and she had their respect. In my talk with her, I could see she had followed the issues closely and was well in-tune with the military and diplomatic requirements. She could have been the Commander-in-Chief.
